Both the making of theatre and going to the theatre contribute to education and literacy. Watching the characters talk back and forth in the theatre is tricky; it requires sharp attention, quick mental shifts, and nimble language skills. It teaches us about human motivations and emotions. In historical plays we get lessons in leadership and education. In contemporary plays, we learn about people and cultures in different parts or our own city or in other countries. Studies have shown that students who participate in theatre do better in school. Theater is great in so many ways, so what’s stopping you from coming to watch a play? Let the story unfold right in front of you, and come to the Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre in Oklahoma City and experience one of the hottest shows in theater right now, Wicked live!
