Teaching Drama

A Code of Ethics for the Theatre

Code of Ethics

When actress Kathleen Freeman passed away, a “Code of Ethics for Theatre Workers” was found among her papers. She wrote the code at the age of 24.

Although it was intended for “professionals” it’s completely applicable to any high school or middle school theatre group. The code could be summed up as Be respectful.”

You can read the whole thing here. Print it and post it in your drama room. Post it in your theatre. Every rule in this list is golden.
