In theater and performance arts, 4-H members may participate in skits through acting, or showcase other talents such as vocal performance, play an instrument, dance, read poetry, conduct puppetry…and more! The best part of the program is the chance to have FUN and getting to share that excitement with others!
Through theater and performance arts, 4-H members will develop a spirit of cooperation, develop self-confidence through public performance, discover and develop their talents, and grow socially, culturally, and develop their leadership skills. But most importantly, theater and performance arts is about HAVING FUN!
The contest related to theater and performance arts is Share-The-Fun. The contest has seven categories:
- Celebrate 4-H
- Choreographed Routines
- Solo/Band Performance
New guidelines are released each year. Entries can include up to nine 4-H members and performances must be no longer than six minutes. There are opportunities to participate at the county, district, and state (Senior 4-H members only) levels. Check with your County Extension Agent for details!
