Why TRY?

Our curriculum encourages the development of creativity and confidence by exploring different modes of expression. Plays and scripts are written or adapted specifically for the classroom dynamic allowing all students to capitalize on their personal strengths and feel confident publicly performing in English.

The TRY Promise

Equality

We promise to give equal importance to every child. Every performance has bigger and smaller roles, but at TRY we cater and tailor each role to bring out the confidence and individual qualities out our students. We think it is important to recognize that standing on the center of the stage is not the only place for students of drama to feel inspired. There is the writing, and the directing, the lighting, and the costumes, and the sets, and so much more that goes on behind the scenes where students are needed and inspired.


Challenging

We promise to be challenging. Drama should be a reflection of our society and cultures, not an endless re-rendition of haute culture. Our scripts and performances are developed anew each season, sometimes as a collaborative effort and sometimes through sheer inspiration. But all of them deal with issues that stem from the students themselves and that the students can relate to organically. At TRY we understand that acting is useless if the performers do not bring in their energy. Our work energizes.

Too Hip to Quit

We promise to be hip. Drama is often seen as a reflection of our society and culture. Our scripts and performances are developed new each season, sometimes as a collaborative effort and sometimes through divine inspiration. We do our best to stay current and to use the issues of our day as a challenge and a way to understand ourselves and the world around us. Shakespeare continues to be interpreted today by different generations of students.


Safe Environment

We promise to be safe. We understand that the way we work gets the children to be all over the place, and we like it that way. At the same time, we are absolutely aware of each child at every moment, making sure nothing bad happens to any of them. We also understand that teenage years can be cruel and insecure. The environment we build inside the studio is one of mutual understanding, humor and camaraderie. There is no judging at TRY theatre.

A promise is a promise. Our promise is more than just a few words on a page. We promise to stand behind these words and use them as the foundation of all our relationships.

I’ve been a part of TRY for five years and it’s become my second home. When I started I was a quite and shy thirteen year old and I graduated from TRY totally different. TRY theatre has taught me so much, how to stand up for myself, not to be afraid of challenges, and open up to the world.
