L'il Actor (Creative Dramatics) Pre k -Ages 3 & 4
The purpose of creative drama is to foster personality growth and to facilitate learning of the participants rather than to
train little actors for the stage. Creative drama may be used to teach the art of drama and/or motivate and extend the learning in other content areas. Participation in creative drama has the
potential to develop language and communication abilities, problem-solving skills, and creativity; to promote a positive self-concept, social awareness, empathy, a clarification of values and
attitudes, and an understanding of the art of theatre. Built on human impulse and ability to act out perceptions of the world in order to understand it, creative drama requires both logical and
intuitive thinking, personalizes knowledge, and yields aesthetic pleasure. Liitle Stars performs one number in the June recital.
