I recently got my EdTA membership packet, and they had this really interesting sheet in it that I thought I'd share. 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, But 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. I thought it was pretty interesting, even though it is coming more from an acting side. Comments? *The sheet spelled this as Mathemetical.
