Taking it into the Schools
Thanks to the generous support of Cameco, Sum Theatre has been able to bring this confidence-building work to students in need. Through a series of of drama classes, Sum Theatre works directly with youth to learn about themselves, their peers and how to work together as a team. Students find skills within themselves such as focus, critical thinking, confidence and creativity and utilize them in a collaborative environment.
"Thank you for teaching us how to act and how to be a very good listener, and showing us how to communicate with others."
- Student, Age 12
