Theater Education Support

March 20, 1993

March is the second annual "Theater in Our Schools Month," sponsored by the Educational Theatre Assn. This nationwide celebration was created to inform the public of the benefits theater education can have on young adults.

As a sophomore at El Dorado High School, I have been thoroughly enriched through drama activities in the past two years. I can hardly begin to express my belief that theater education is a very necessary part of the high-school experience.

My self-image has improved due to the constant positive reinforcement I receive from others. I have a greater understanding of myself through explorations of the characters I portray and the emotions and characteristics I am composed of. I have learned to accept criticism with grace and gratitude.

I have seen obvious improvements in my basic memorization, public speaking, improvisation, creative thinking, writing and listening skills. In addition, I've met new people, earned money, won awards, gained exposure for a possible future career and gained many irreplaceable memories.

I ask you, the public, to please support high-school theater and encourage the valuable benefits it can have.
