Example text

Childhood - the invention of an enfranchised middle class that declared the vulnerability, and hence the need for protection, of the formative years - demanded a culture for children that would be consistent with current concepts of child rearing. The first didactic plays for children meant to teach such virtues as diligence, humility, propriety, politeness, and obedience, appeared in the age of the “theatre as moral institution” in eighteenth century Europe” (p. 150). An important lesson we can learn from history is that, from the very beginning, the theatre for young people was invoked in an effort to educate children, sometimes even with no artistic pretensions at all.

Since the eighteenth century, children’s literature has been strongly linked to the educational establishment and has based its legitimacy on it. As Shavit (1986) argued, “This linkage has served as a source for constraints imposed upon children’s literature in at least two areas: the way in which children are presented, characterized, and judged by the texts and the way in which the child is assumed to be the implied reader of the text” (pp. 30-31). This clarification sheds light on children’s theatre in the sense that, until some thirty years ago, most of the plays were based on books or oral stories adapted for the theatre.

Resources that shed light on the origin of theatre for young audiences are limited. The works I have encountered on this subject are in agreement; I present their conclusions below. The American children’s theatre was originally an educational and social enterprise rather than a theatrical establishment. Children’s theatre in America “was not an accidental happening”, as McCaslin argued, “nor has it ever been a microcosm of the adult theatre, designed and planned to indoctrinate young audiences in an ancient art form.
