Drama is a creative outlet— and a challenging one at that. Children and young adults need a way to be able to express themselves, their thoughts and views on the world. What better way than through theatre? It challenges us to open our minds, explore different worlds through scripts and scores and characters, and to be able to tell a story in a variety of ways — through words, song, mime, tableau, puppetry… the list goes on and on. Then, importantly for the electronic generation, being in a tight knit performance group creates incredibly strong bonds over a very short period of time. When you’re working together with a group of like-minded people to create a cohesive piece of work, it’s inevitable.
Theatre people don’t always fit in with people outside of the theatre. We can be thought of as eccentric, odd, spacey. People not involved in theatre don’t understand why we spend long hours rehearsing. But those children and young adults, who are obsessed with the latest Broadway or West End offering, who randomly break out into song and dance get it, they get each other and we get them.
