Educational Theatre: Form and Facility for the Secondary School.
Jones, Charles Valentine
This study examines educational theatre as a program and the implications that the program has on the accompanying facility. The study used the Delphi technique to arrive at physical standards indicated by the program definition, which was used in the consideration of the physical requisites for each of three staging types--proscenium, thrust, and arena. Factors involved in the study were the size of the facility, teacher competence, and the structure of the building. Findings indicated that the type of staging was not important to the accomplishment of the objectives of educational theatre, provided that the facility meets the physical standards set by the Delphi analysis. Some facets of the program, such as availability of the facility, indicated that one type of staging--arena--was preferable. However, all types of staging could be adequate. Supplementary findings implied that cost could be a very significant factor. (Author/JM)
