THE HURRAH PLAYERS, INC.
Help keep the curtain raised on Virginia’s Leading Family Theatre Company!
“Participating with Hurrah is not just about being “on-stage”. The success of our students personifies with the life skills learned in our educational programs. With positive reinforcement in a professional, family-style environment, our students develop creativity, master cognitive skills, adopt positive social behavior and self-discipline and most importantly, achieve self confidence. We challenge and inspire our students in preparation for their greatest production - life!”
-Hugh R. Copeland
Our value to the community is also far greater than ‘simple entertainment’. As a successful organization we create jobs, patronize local vendors and businesses, generate tax revenues, and provide valuable recognition for our region. We are helping build a dynamic community both culturally and economically. The education of our students is the enrichment of our society.
Why Arts Are Important
They are languages that all people speak that cut across racial, cultural, social, educational, and economic barriers and enhance cultural appreciation and awareness.
They provide opportunities for self-expression, bringing the inner world into the outer world of concrete reality.
They develop both independence and collaboration.
They make it possible to use personal strengths in meaningful ways and to bridge into understanding sometimes difficult abstractions through these strengths.
They improve academic achievement - enhancing test scores, attitudes, social skills, critical and creative thinking.
They exercise and develop higher order thinking skills including analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and "problem-finding."
They provide the means for every student to learn.
