Preparing Students to Attend Live Theatre sets students up for successful and more meaningful theatre experiences! Discussions include: What is Theatre? What is Etiquette? The Golden Rules of Theatre Etiquette
Use this lesson to pre-teach the protocols of theatre etiquette so that your students are prepared to attend live productions with all the social graces of a regular theatre-goer! This also helps students learn appropriate social skills and gain more from their theatre experience!
I use this with 7th and 8th graders, but it can be used successfully with 5th through 12th grades. It is especially successful with students who are attending live theatre for the first time or who have never learned theatre protocol.
