Why Teach Theatre in our Schools? Theatre is a SCIENCE. Theatre is MATHEMATICAL. Theatre is a FOREIGN LANGUAGE. Theatre is HISTORY. Theatre is PHYSICAL EDUCATION. Theatre is LANGUAGE ARTS. Theatre is BUSINESS. Theatre is TECHNOLOGY. Theatre is ECONOMICS.
Theatre is taught in schools Not because you are expected to major in theatre, Not because you are expected to perform all through life, Not so you can relax, Not so you can have fun, But So you will recognize BEAUTY, So you will be SENSITIVE, So you will be closer to an INFINITE BEYOND THIS WORLD, So you will have more LOVE, More COMPASSION, More GENTLENESS, More GOOD, In short, More LIFE.
Of what value will it be to make a prosperous living Unless you know how to live? That is why theatre is taught in our schools.
Calynn Klohn is excited to be making her Carroll debut this summer! She is transferring to Carroll this fall and this is her first time participating in the Summer Repertory Series. Currently, she is playing Natalie in NEXT TO NORMAL which can be seen August 11-19! Also this summer, she is teaching a children's theatre camp at Divine Savior Holy Angels High School. Some of her previous credits include The Baker’s Wife in Into the Woods (DSHA), Ophelia in Hamlet (Off the Wall), and Winifred in Once Upon a Mattress (First Stage). She looks forward to continuing her studies and theatrical career at Carroll, and would like to thank her sister and mom for listening, laughing, and lightening the load.
