About theatre education in America
Young people today are not connecting to the fully human. Parents are often not home. Their children are always on video games, computers and texting. When young people are communicating through texting and emails (Facebook, MySpace, etc), they do not have much opportunity to read body language, which is a large part of communication. In short, they have lots of contact but little connection. Without eye contact there are few opportunities to learn and practice subtle social cues. We see the results of this in poor manners and generally poor social skills. These lacks have important implications for children's ability to grow up able to function in family, community and workplace. Theatre may be the most important venue to teach some of these skills. Theatre may never have been more important to our culture.
