Statement of Purpose Part Four

The goal of educational theatre is to teach the doing of theatre to young artists.  Standards are to be kept high any time we are doing this work of education.  We set the standard by the impeccability of our own work and we must hold others to that standard.  We must expect our students to bring their own work to the table and not excuse their failings.  A student with an excuse is still a student who did not do the work.  And a student who does not do the work is unacceptable.
