why we do it

The Young Shakespeareans  was created with five goals in mind:

 

  • To create a learning community that employs theatre arts to maximize students' academic, social, and aesthetic potential;

  • To increase students' sense of compassion, self-awareness, and emotional literacy, through their analysis and understanding of dramatic literature and universal themes;

  • To create a “contagion of community” that engages the cooperative participation of students, parents, faculty, and administrators;

 

  • To encourage business and institutional investment in the surrounding school community;

 

  • To capture the imagination of the broader community and promote high academic standards for all student groups, regardless of ethnicity, native language, or income level.
