the more important point here is not whether the production is judged to be 'good', 'bad', 'professional' or 'amateur' etc, surely the more important point is the learning to be gained by students having the access and exposure to the scripts through the medium for which they are written, live performance.
We have all attended performances that we may judge to be 'good', 'bad', 'professional' when they are amateur and vice versa. I think is also safe to say that no two productions of the same text are ever the same, that is the very beauty and essence of theatre; the written text comes alive in performance through an ensemble of ideas from the actors, director, lighting design, sound, costume, etc. It is the marriage of ideas that create a performance of a text as distinct from the reading of a script and for theatre students it is fundamental that they learn this process and they themselves are able to challenge the their views about the bringing a text to live in performance.
I contend that the learning process is enhanced by the performance be it at any 'level', good, bad, prof and amateur. It is through being able to critically evaluate another's ideas that we trully open the learning process and create ourselves.
Let's encourage access to any and all performances of texts for study and bring forth the creativity of the future youth.
