THEATRE4KIDS: PLAYS AND PROCESS
While a GATE teacher, Virginia Pulitzer developed a K-8 theatre program that would enhance the learning experience, not only for her gifted students , but also for the general school population. While perusing children's plays, she became frustrated with the quality of available scripts and decided to write her own. The school provided no extra money for the program so she had to find creative ways to handle all aspects of play production. She solicited parent and colleague help, asked local businesses for donations or to buy program ads, and requested that local media provide free publicity. Encouraged by her colleagues, she created THEATRE4KIDS: PLAYS AND PROCESS, a teacher resource which not only gives an educator, amateur director, parent or a children's group leader an anthology of 15 original, royalty free, audience-tested plays; but also provides instruction on how to make things happen with no previous theatre experience and on little or no budget.
