Delaware Arts and Entertainment Education: Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington, Summer on Stage

Share

There’s more than entertainment to theater. “I feel like theater instruction teaches us to understand what it’s like to be human—and to be human in a community of other humans, how to understand each other and communicate. It teaches us how to present and receive ideas. And it celebrates our relationships. It connects us to each other through time and space to the here and now,” says Johanna Schloss, associate director of education and community engagement at DTC. In other words, there’s a reason why we still read Aeschylus and Euripides. The state’s flagship professional theater has maintained a commitment to education. Totally Awesome Players educates kids with disabilities. Summer on Stage, for kids 8-15, teaches acting, movement, voice and stagecraft, all culminating in the performance of an original play. New last year, Stage 2 is Summer on Stage for older teens. Other classes are offered year round for people of all ages. Wilmington, 594-1100, delawaretheatre.org
