This book examines the impact of high school theatre on developing adolescents making the transition into adulthood. The participants in this study were graduates of a private urban high school in the mid-west, aged from 18 to 34. This is a qualitative study using in-depth interviews as the primary research tool and the methodology of portraiture to frame the interviews. The primary research question is: How do high school graduates describe their experience in high school theatre? The theoretical basis for this study is constructivist, and includes Dewey s concept of art as experience, Bruner s emphasis on meaning-making and Erikson s work in the human life cycle. The emerging data illustrates how graduates construct meaning in numerous social, psychological, artistic, and spiritual ways.
