Why Teach Theatre in Our Schools?


Theatre is a Science
Theatre is Mathematical
Theatre is a Foreign Language
Theatre is History
Theatre is Physical Education
Theatre is Business
Theatre is Technology
Theatre is Economics


Theatre is taught in schools
Not because you are expected to major in theatre,
Not because you are expected to perform all through life,
Not so you can relax,
Not so you can have fun,


So you will recognize Beauty
So you will be Sensitive
So you will be closer to an Infinite beyond this world
So you will have more Love,
More Compassion
More Gentleness,
More Good,
In short,
More Life.


Of What value will it be to make a prosperous living
Unless you know how to live?

That is why theatre is taught in our Schools.
