Theatre has been an influential factor in many people’s lives.
Creativity can flourish, academics can improve and means of self
expression can be developed. “The creative process of theatre leads
children to be more open minded and acceptable because of the diverse
roles they portray.”
Theatre can teach valuable skills that can be used in the professional
world, staging and performing in a show can promote teamwork through the
actors and the crew. Speaking in front of the audience develops
confidence and improves communication skills. Improvisation can be done
in a group or individually and develops quick thinking in times of
pressure and also develops team work and listening skills.
Children are our future, it is imperative that we develop well- rounded
individuals that can contribute to society. Dramatics classes can
promote positive approach and the skills learned can be used to resolve
any problem, be it big or small. It is important to teach this to
toady’s youth so that it gets passed on through the years.
