Drama Education

Featuring Katherine Sugarman, Assistant on drama productions at Orange Preparatory Academy

Drama Education for Carpe Diem

Airing on CARPE DIEM October 14-18, 2013

Is drama education a necessity in secondary and high school education? That is the question that school districts are asking. Host, Jack Smith IV, sits down with guest Katherine Sugarman, who assists on drama productions at Orange Preparatory Academy. Sugarman talks about the needs and benefits of drama education in the school system.

She discusses her involvement in various school productions and being able to work with students. Featured in the episode are clips from Orange Preparatory Academy’s production of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare.” Sugarman points out that students sometimes struggle with the Shakespearean language and changing it to something more accessible, like rapping, helps the students understand the meaning of the stories better.

This episode was produced and directed by MSU Alum Ian Elliott and hosted by TVDM major Jack Smith IV.
