  • Top Ten Benefits of Theatre Education

    1. Self-Confidence

    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.

    2. Imagination

    In a world addicted to technology, theatre provides an outlet for making creative choices, developing new ideas, and interpreting the material in expressive ways.

    3. Empathy and Tolerance

    Acting in roles from different situations, time periods, and cultures promotes compassion and tolerance for others. Legends, myths, poems, stories, and plays used in drama teach students about social issues and conflicts from cultures past and present, all over the world.

    4. Cooperation and Collaboration

    Theatre combines creative ideas and abilities from all of its participants. Just as in group sports, teamwork is essential to creating a polished and successful product.

    5. Concentration

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

    6. Communication Skills

    Drama enhances verbal and nonverbal expression of ideas. It improves voice projection, articulation, fluency of language, and persuasive speech, which serves well in school, job interviews, career moves, and beyond.

    7. Problem Solving

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

    8. Fun

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

    9. Trust

    Social interaction and risk-taking in drama develop trust in self, others, and the creative process.

    10. Memory

    Rehearsing and performing the words, movements, and cues of the story from memory strengthen this skill like a muscle.
