Leading Teaching Artists engage Students and Teachers to Create, Perform, Respond and Connect

WHY TEACH THEATER IN SCHOOLS?

  • Theater is SCIENTIFIC and MATHEMATICAL.
  • Theater is a FOREIGN LANGUAGE and HISTORY.
  • Theater is PHYSICAL EDUCATION and TECHNOLOGY, BUSINESS, LANGUAGE ARTS and ECONOMICS.

Theater is taught in schools not because you are expected to major in theater, or to become a performer for the rest of your life, and not so you can relax or so you can have fun, but

  • So you will THINK CREATIVELY,
  • So you will recognize BEAUTY
  • and be more AWARE,
  • have more COMPASSION and GENTLENESS, more GOOD...    in short, MORE LIFE.
