The Benefits of Theatre Education




Taking risks in class and performing for an audience teach students to trust their ideas

and abilities. This confidence will apply in nearly every aspect of their future. 



In a word addicted to technology, theatre provides an outlet for making creative choices,

thinking new ideas, and interpreting the material in expressive ways that are the essence

of drama. 



Empathy & Tolerance:

Acting roles from different situations, time periods, and cultures promotes compassion and

tolerance for others.




Theatre combines the creative ideas and abilities from its participants.




Playing, practicing, and performing develop a sustained focus of mind, body, and voice which helps with other areas of life including school. 


Communication Skills: 

Drama enhances verbal and nonverbal expression of ideas. It improves voice projection, articulation, fluency of language, and persuasive speech. 



Problem Solving:

Students learn to communicate the who, what, where, when, and why to the audience. Improvisation fosters quick-thinking solutions, which leads to greater adaptability in life. 




Theatre brings play, humor, and laughter to learning; this improves motivation and reduces stress. 




The social interaction and risk taking in drama develop trust in self, others, and the process. 




Rehearsing and performing the words, movements, and cues strengthen this skill like a muscle.

Legends, myths, poems, stories, and plays used in drama teach students about social issues and conflicts from cultures past, present, all over the world.



Aesthetic Appreciation:
