In this easy DIY manual, teachers with little to no theater experience can teach theater skills to their students that boost esteem, confidence, and creativity. This step-by-step school edition was designed with teachers in mind. Each lesson has two short activities, an enrichment game and a true story of children in theater. Just open the book and begin!

The book focuses on Voice Control, Creative Movement, Expression, Concentration, Imagination, and Stagecraft. Those teaching from the pages do not have to be thespians to manage the games and activities. Children do not have to go on to a life on the stage to benefit from the skills learned. There are lifelong lessons such as being a good audience member, which is what most of us will be most of the time; learning to speak up, which is necessary when delivering an oral report or a report to a committee; and acting confident, such as in a job interview. Appendix A is "Why Teach Theater" and lists studies and resources on the difference theater can make.

About the Author

Marian Scadden graduated in Children's Theatre from Brigham Young University decades ago, more or less. She's been playing ever since, through recreation departments, art organizations, schools, theatre companies, and with her four children who, even now as grown-ups, can do the mime walk, speak loudly, and stand in front of people. Marian reads a lot, and likes to write in other genres besides theatre, such as Young Adult fantasy, Middle Grade stuff, and Picture Books. She loves playing board games with her family, especially when she wins.
