"Everybody and his mother's dog knew the regular Christmas Carol and I was getting a little sick of it," said Michael Siebrass, the artistic director for the Readers' Theatre who chose the alternate version, which has "some good values and it's a heck of a story."
...
Attention is paid to sound and lighting, but "the focus should be on the story and how it's read," said Siebrass, who started the Readers' Theatre almost three years ago.
When Siebrass came to the Central Coast in 2000, he was shocked at what little opportunity there was for local actors.So he took his idea for Readers' Theatre (a name he doesn't even like, but thought of quickly) to the Little Theatre, and thus a new form of acting was born in San Luis Obispo, beginning with the political play "The Best Man," which Siebrass strategically chose because it was an election year.
...
Siebrass noted a few advantages to Readers' Theatre productions, aside from the valuable experience for the volunteering actors and
directors.Because Reader's
Theatre doesn't need to worry about selling out the house and making a profit, Siebrass is at liberty to choose edgier shows and doesn't have to look for actors based on the characters' attributes.
"We are not held tightly to gender, race or age," Siebrass said.

Upon graduation from the University of Portland, Michael was co-founder of the Muses Theatre in Portland, a theatre housed in the basement of an espresso house, where he acted in and directed plays by Sartre, Beckett, Ionesco, and Michel de Ghelderode among others.
