How Festival Participation Aligns with the North Carolina
Essential Standards for Theatre Arts Education
The Festival platform gives teachers the opportunity to fulfill the NC Essential Standards for Theatre Arts and enhances critical thinking skills through an exciting, hands-on learning experience. The Play Festival rehearsal and performance process teaches students the processes needed to think creatively and critically, and develop and test innovative ideas and to use movement, voice, and writing to communicate ideas and feelings. Students are taught to understand how to design technical theatre components, such as costumes, sets, props, makeup, lighting, and sound, when they design and construct the production design elements for their Festival show.
By watching performances from other schools, students develop critical thinking skills and learn to understand the traditions, roles, and conventions of theatre as an art form. At the Festival, young artists analyze literary texts and performances and also analyze theatre in terms of the social, historical, and cultural contexts in which it was created.
In addition to these essential lessons, students receive valuable feedback from industry experts which helps to improve the quality of theatre programs in schools across the state, and encourages students to strive for excellence.
