Attracting Children to Drama

Posted by Jordan Snider on Jan 21, 2019 5:00:45 AM

Children are attracted to acting for various reasons.  And not all kids interested in drama are ready to get out there and perform on stage in front of a number of strangers.  So how do you draw out the children that are interested but a tad reserved?  Drama Notebook, an organization with a 14 year world’s largest collection of drama games, lesson plans, scripts and drama activities for kids and teens, has some thoughts on how draw children into the world of acting. Here are some tips to consider:

  • Show children that you believe that they are capable of all that they want to do
  • Give children the space to observe first
  • Entice participation at a comfortable pace
  • Be supportive
  • Patience pays off
  • Every step counts as success
  • Not every child needs to be the star and any boost in confidence is a giant stride

" Drama doesn’t have to be about ‘showing off’ at the end. Rather, it is a process that can have a powerful, transformational effect on a person."
