Abstract

The focus of this chapter is on how teachers can and do play a critical role in selecting, scaffolding and sustaining theatre attendance for young people. Both the potential for developing less experienced young people’s understanding of theatre form and the extension of the responses of more experienced young theatre goers are explored in this chapter.
