Effects of Theatre Education

Theatre is about shaping and encouraging young humans to be their best selves.  This is developed through self-awareness, self-confidence, knowledge about the world in which they live and the other humans that occupy this planet as well as developed through compassion, tolerance and true harmony.

Theatre often sees the most brilliant and most dark of our personalities. We are rubbed raw, exposing the parts of us that few people get to see. It's in those moments that true awareness is reached. When we find out who we really are, we can find the areas in which we need to grow or adapt.

The effects of theatre education are endless upon young people. Students consistently out-perform their peers on testing, social awareness, attendance and skills such as reading comprehension and complex thinking.
