Synopsis

Igniting Wonder Plays for Preschoolers by Childern's Theatre Company

Young children love to explore their world through drama--characters, dialogue, story arcs, and props are all standard elements of a child's play. It is no surprise then that professional theatre has long been regarded as a way to support children's social-emotional, cognitive, and creative development. Increasingly, there is an international interest in theatre for very young audiences, and the Wall Street Journal reported on a baby boom in American theatre, with a marked upswing in the number of stage plays being written and produced for toddlers and preschoolers.
