“All the world is a stage.” Shakespeare said. For this stage called life, theatre is considered an all-inclusive medium. It embraces many different types of topics and represents all kinds of people and situations. It is now emerging as a very powerful medium and it is recognized as an effective training tool at all levels from schools to corporate organizations to bring out and discover abilities and transversal skills.

In theatre all are self-starters. They learn how to take initiative, to move a project from initial concept to finality.
