There is nothing like Musical Theatre to bring together a group of children and there are so many benefits. Having a regular creative outlet is not just part of a well-rounded education – it is essential for a child’s emotional health and well-being. Producing a show, however large or small, brings the arts together.
Besides being incredibly fun, musical theatre helps young people develop many of the skills necessary for success in today’s world:
Self-Confidence: Throughout a rehearsal and performance process, young performers discover how to take creative and emotional risks and learn to trust their abilities.
Literacy: Children increase reading and writing skills at their own pace by immersing themselves in the story, reading and re-reading their scripts, memorising their lines.
Communication: During rehearsals, children learn how to articulate their thoughts and questions and carefully listen to direction in order to improve their performances.
Imagination: Theatre is most dynamic when the imaginations of its participants are fully engaged. Children make countless interpretive choices in design and performance to create a detailed, fictional world for their parents
Public Speaking: Whether performing for their peers during rehearsal or for their parents during a performance, the children gain expertise and confidence speaking in front of a group.
Teamwork: Theatre requires extensive creative input from all its participants. Children build ensemble by working together to rehearse, construct, promote, and perform their show. Every role – whether onstage or behind the scenes – is vital for a show’s success.
