Many teachers combine these biographies with others Dramamommaspeaks over actors Lin Manuel Miranda, actresses Audra McDonald and Meryl Streep or designer Ming Cho Lee. Or they tie it to a lesson about the Tony Awards at: Tony Awards Lesson

If your students need to do a research project, the Places Please lessons are good ones to introduce the unit. Perhaps more students would pursue a career in the theater arts if we show them what is possible for them?

In addition, these bios. are a great spring board for discussion concerning goals, tenacity, determination and professionalism.

There is more to theater than just improvisation, plays and games. I teach theater with a twist. This is an example of what I mean.
