… a local mom had a vision of helping children develop a love for literature filtered through a Christian worldview. Using theater as a tool, classics from Shakespeare, Dickens and others would be introduced to all ages. Soon the local village caught this vision. Children learned poetic passages, put on costumes, and recited great speeches. They created a make-believe world from the pages of great classics. With much merriment young and young at heart embraced these stories anew!
We celebrate the confidence gained by shy students and encourage teamwork and self-control in the bold students. Every class has a mixture of experience and personality. More advanced students always have something to master: timing, tone, movement, and understanding.
We stage classical literature from an educational standpoint that is affordable without competitive auditions. This is a good way to try theater, especially helpful for beginning students. Pages Alive Theater is excited to develop year-round opportunities to serve local families and the community.
