Title
A Study of Three Montreal Children's Theatres
Abstract
The author examines three Montreal children's theatres: the Montreal Children's Theatre, founded in 1933 by Dorothy Davis and Violet Walters, followed the British tradition of commercial theatre which emphasized the acquisition of acting skills; the studio operated by Mme Jean-Louis Audet, which had its roots in the French tradition and stressed voice and speech skills; and the Children's Drama Group of the Jewish Public Library, organized and directed by Dora Wasserman, a graduate of the Yiddish Art Theatre in Moscow, who promoted Stanislavski techniques to encourage emotional expression and imagination.
