Why is theatre taught in 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,
    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.
