Theatre education embraces many aspects of student curriculum: English, History, Science, Social Studies, Math, Music, and more. Through stories, character development, problem-solving, and critical thinking, students explore these areas of curriculum in order to creatively exist within the world of a play. The goal at FMCT Ed is to expand upon a student’s frame of reference and teach them to make connections between the theatre that they create and the world in which they live. Students learn to collaborate with their peers, connect with people from differing backgrounds, and begin to see themselves as valued citizens on the world’s stage where they develop important ideas about justice, history, personal choices, politics, and humanity.
