When I launched Generate Theatre Arts in 2012, it was because I wanted to create an environment for children to engage positively with performing arts content, and to show the value of performing arts as a vehicle for exploring themes and content from other academic fields - knowing that drama engages visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners all at once. The results have been staggering.
More than five thousand children across sixteen schools in Stockport have passed through our classes, and our yearly productions at the Stockport Plaza have been unforgettable experiences for our members, and a wonderful platform to represent schools from the region.
Drama teaches children the life skill of empathy as they learn to see things through the eyes of different characters; it develops a collaborative spirit as our members must work together effectively for the best result on stage and in class; it develops confidence as each child realises new capabilities with every challange.
Drama sharpens our members' critical thinking and analytical skills, and creates a vocabulary for our children to articulate their thoughts and feelings constructively. This has never been about creating world class performers, it's about creating world class people.
