The Mean Green Bean Emotional Theater emerged from the pages of the book Jester Lester and the Mean Green Bean.
as the tale unfolds you'll find yourself getting emotional with sadness, trust, disgust, anticipation, anger, fear, surprise, and joy - all while in the background learning a powerful skill known as empathy.
Empathy is the ability to sense other people's emotions, coupled with the ability to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling.
When we practice empathy through theatrics, we enhance our expression of emotions while learning to identify emotions in others. And so one can conclude that theater enhances empathy.
We'll take our empathy with us onto the stage of life where we can make a powerful impact on our future as we use our skills out in the world.
