Theatre and Drama

Before people could read and write, they told stories and acted them out to communicate about events and procedures. Theatre then emerges from drama, so perhaps it’s helpful to think about both as a spiral in that one leads to the other. Drama becomes Theatre, which then informs Drama... Or perhaps it’s more of a continuum—an activity that has its roots in the pretend play of toddlers and reaches its highest level of sophistication in an exquisite professional production.
