- Theatre brings people together
Theatre is a place whereby people from different walks of life come together for a few hours, share their thoughts and opinions. Through these conversations you will be able to learn about those around you. However, theatre also lets you learn more about yourself. You learn to make peace with yourself not shaking your self-confidence.
2. Talks about important topics
Theatre is not always fun and games. Theatre brings to light serious issues that people all over the world face. Plays like “Off Centre” and “Charged” talk about issues some people here in Singapore face. Theatre helps people to empathize and sympathize with each other. It also encourages people to have conversations about these topics.
3. It is a contribution to education and literacy
Different plays offer different lessons. In historical plays, we are able to learn about leadership and government. In contemporary plays, we learn about people and their different cultures. Theatre is able to teach us human motivation and psychology. There are many different renditions of Romeo and Juliet in the world today. Through the different renditions we are able to see how different people understand the same story.
Theatre is more than just a source of entertainment. It can bring about change in everyone, change for the better. It is a place where you can make mistakes, grow and learn to be the best version of yourself.
