The Case for Children’s Theatre: A Place for Kids to Learn, Grow and Imagine


Lionheart's Children's Theatre Camps


Besides being crazy amounts of fun, theatre also has tons of great benefits in terms of development and socialization. It’s probably no surprise that activities like improv and other drama courses can boost self-esteem and confidence. The theatre is a place where inner silliness and creativity are embraced. When children learn to be more confident in themselves, it translates to other aspects of their lives, like school, communication, and social situations.


In addition to confidence and creativity boosts, practicing theatre can help in other useful ways. If your child decides to participate in one of Lionheart’s Children’s Theatre productions, chances are they’ll have to learn parts of a script. When they see what they read come to life on the stage, they’ll likely improve their reading comprehension elsewhere. It might even make them more interested in reading off the stage, too!


Ultimately, the benefits of theatre are endless. But besides that, it’s a lot of fun. Check out our upcoming camps, auditions and plays, and sign your child up today to be a part of the extended Lionheart family!
