The Tempest, A Grade 8 Rite of Passage

Waldorf Academy grade 8 plays: A rite of passage “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep” Prospero, The Tempest

Pedagogical theatre is a discipline as important as any other pursued in school. It entertains, inspires and instructs in a way that is only possible when the human being, as an enactor, performs a story before other human beings. It creates moments of artistic communion that lead us to clearer understandings of what it means to be a becoming human being, both individually, and in community.’ Arthur Pittis 

There is a deep social element to the entire curriculum in a Waldorf school. Everything includes an element of social balance and the gathering of any class into a harmonious working organism. Plays work magic in getting to this goal and the grade 8 presentation of William Shakespeare’s, The Tempest, mirrors the particular developmental stage of the class.

We encourage educators and families to attend a performance and meet with the director afterwards to learn more about the pedagogical process behind a class play in Waldorf education.
