Drama defines a genre, or style of
writing. Drama is a play that can be performed for theatre, radio or
even television. These plays are usually written out as a script, or
a written version of a play that is read by the actors but not the
audience. This is where theatre comes in. Drama, as in a play, is
meant to be performed on a stage in front of an audience at the
theatre. So, drama refers to the script, while the word theatre is
the performance of the script.
Drama can have an immense positive impact on children, which is to say, it has the potential, as a diverse medium, to enhance cognitive, affective and motor child development. A high degree of thinking, feeling and moving is involved and subsequently aids in the development of skills for all other learning within and outside of schools (transfer of learning).
