Theatre is for...


"In my role as Theatre and Dance Educational Specialist for Fairfax County Public Schools, I support and advocate for theatre to be available for all students in their K-12 education. As I have had opportunities to visit and research theatre education programs across the united states and abroad, you find that many districts and/ or schools don’t have theatre courses, teachers, or offerings. I believe that every student should have the opportunity to take a theatre class and/ or be a part of a performing ensemble or production team. In a world that has become more connected but increasingly disconnected, theatre provides essential skills and experiences that our kids need. Theatre education and experiences can change a kid’s life, give them a reason to come to school- it did for me—I would like to support all kids having that same opportunity in their K-12 public education."

Tara Taylor is a longtime theatre educator and works at the school district level in Virginia to advocate for the performing arts.
