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,
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,
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.

Griffin Idelman is a sophomore majoring in Communication and minoring in Management and Leadership. He is participating in his second Carroll production this spring in LEGALLY BLONDE THE MUSICAL where he will be taking on the role of Warner Huntington III. Previously, he played Ram Sweeney in HEATHERS. He is a part of the Carroll Players executive board as the Social Outreach coordinator. He also participates in Football here at Carroll and enjoys spending time giving tours around campus. Chances are if you ask anyone at Carroll they’ll know Griffin.
"We believe in teaching Theatre as an ART FORM. We train students to know what it means to be an Artist."
