Our Standards

The Colorado State Department of Education theatre standards are structured around the creation and performance of and critical response to theatrical works. We have adopted the standards as our guiding frame because of their holistic approach to the entire process of theatre-making. In this way, we can share our experiences as we create, perform, and respond. 

 
 

"The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic... music, dance, painting, and theatre are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment."

— William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education
