Power Drama School's production of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" - December 2014
Our recent production of "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" took place on the 6th and 7th of December in Lusk National School starring a cast of 49 students and was a great success.

Benefits of Performing Arts
- Our classes promote team-work (team-building games/working together as a cast)
- Participating in Performing Arts help students increase their self-esteem and confidence.
- Allows children to express themselves creatively
- Promotes understanding and empathy (by taking on the role of another character children get the opportunity to learn how to “walk in the shoes of someone else”)
- Problem solving and co-operation (children work together to develop ideas with one another, they must discuss and agree on outcomes for improvisations and team-work activities)
- Spatial awareness (students learn not to “block” each other on stage, they learn to create patterns and shapes with their bodies through dance and movement)
- Reading and speaking; through the use of tongue twisters, script reading etc students practice reading and speaking. Children learn to emphasize certain words, phrases and how to project their voices properly.
- Dancing is a great form of exercise and helps students improve flexibilty, balance and increase energy.
- Singing has been proven to reduce stress, improve breathing, improve sense of rhythm, promotes learning in children.
- Relaxation and fun: drama gives students an outlet to express themselves freely, drama games are fun and allow students to play and relax.
