Secondary Stages combines in one volume everything a high school teacher needs to organize and implement a sucessful, dynamic theatre program. Bennett's approach is based on a simple premise: that exposure to theatre can be an utterly transforming experience for students–one that enables them to reach unimagined levels of personal, emotional, and intellectual growth. His book delivers hands-on techniques to make it all happen, illustrating how to:

  • draw interested students into the program
  • inspire students to act with truth and conviction
  • establish the connection between good improvisation and good scene work
  • carry passion for theatre outside the classroom and into the mainstream of school life
  • choose material that's stimulating enough to attract a sizable student audience without creating unwanted controversy
  • structure activities and lessons so that they encourage maximum sensitivity and awareness
  • lay the basis for mounting memorable productions.
  • With these goals in mind and with more than three decades of experience, Bennett presents strategies that have consistently proven effective for the broadest possible range of students.
