The arts are the vessels of our culture. Theatre, which can encompass them all, is the richest and most distinguished. Since ancient times, we have gathered around the stage for communal storytelling, to examine important ideas, to celebrate and mourn, to seek truth and to bring history and literature to life. Theatre is a mirror of society and a path to deep understanding of the human condition. In arts education, theatre develops the student connection to social, emotional and ethical learning, building trust, confidence, empathy and resilience through the height of artistic expression.
