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.
For example, CRT’s recent production of The Little Mermaid taught lessons about staying true to who you are, as well as lessons of friendship. CRT’s current show, Frozen, looks at family life and how to cope with trouble caused by siblings. Theatre is a safe way to expose kids to difficult situations and show them firsthand how to handle these situations.
