We believe positive socialization is part of a healthy lifestyle for kids and CRT is offering an opportunity to socialize safely with others in a dramatic way!
Children may not realize how different live theatre is from sitting in front of a TV or even the movie screen. Watching plays and musicals illustrate many different lessons.
Theatre helps children adjust to not seeing a new image every 3-4 seconds, and to realize that something can be entertaining and engaging without a constant change of scenery. They will learn how to sit quietly, respect others, and pay attention.
Children need imagination to grow, create. Performing arts teach children how to think creatively through imagination. Creative thinking skills are critical in the world of business leaders, where the ability to create solutions to problems is a necessary and valued asset.
Children need imagination to grow, create, think, and play. Theatre is the single most valuable place where kids can explore the endless possibilities of their imaginations and what they can do as a team.
