Why We Never Review Kids Theatre

Hey there, parents, readers and young theatre enthusiasts! We know that you’re passionate about theatre and want to see it thrive, which is why we wanted to take a moment to explain why we don’t review kids theatre at Theatre Haus.

As much as we appreciate the hard work and dedication that goes into producing kid’s theatre, we believe that it’s important to create a safe and supportive environment for young people to explore their creativity without fear of public criticism. Kids theatre should be a place where children can learn and grow as performers, without the added pressure of judgement from the public.

Here are some of the reasons why we choose not to review kid’s theatre:

1. Developmental stage: Young performers are still developing their skills and finding their voice, and their performances may not yet reflect their full potential. Public criticism can be damaging and discouraging, especially for children who are still learning and growing as artists.

2. Safe space: Kids theatre should be a safe and nurturing space where young people feel comfortable to take creative risks without fear of judgement. Public criticism can create a hostile environment that is detrimental to the learning and growth of young performers.

3. Different standards: Kids theatre is different from adult theatre in many ways, and should be judged accordingly. Comparing the two can be unfair to young performers who are still learning the ropes.

We understand that constructive criticism has its place in the theatre world, and can be incredibly valuable when given in the right place and time. However, we believe that kids theatre is not the appropriate place for our style of public commentary.

At Theatre Haus, we believe that it’s important to celebrate and encourage young people in their artistic endeavours. Rather than publicly reviewing kids theatre, we prefer to offer support and promotion of young performers and their production teams. We believe that by creating a safe and supportive environment for young performers, we can help them grow and flourish as artists. Let’s celebrate the creativity and talent of our young performers, and support them in their journey to becoming the stars of tomorrow!
