Most of all, drama is fun! It brings play, humor, and laughter to learning! Drama is a fun way to build the well-roundedness essential to success in life. 


Rehearsing, memorizing and performing words, movements and cues strengthen the memory like a muscle. Reading, interpreting, practicing, and performing develop a sustained focus of mind, body and voice. Listening and observation skills are developed through quick-thinking solutions discovered during improvisational games. 


Theater enhances innate ability by fostering creativity in a group setting. This cooperative process includes discussing, negotiating, rehearsing, and performing together for the greatest benefit of all. Drama enhances verbal and nonverbal expression, improves voice projection, articulation of words and fluency of language, vastly increasing confidence and communication skills early in life.  


Risk-taking among friends and performing for an audience teach students to trust their ideas and abilities. Teamwork and self-confidence will benefit school, career, and life in general.

Generating original ideas and creatively interpreting familiar material in new ways are essential to drama and to all life endeavors. It was Einstein who said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
