I believe the arts contribute to the formation of the Sacred Heart Woman by making her more attune to the world in which she lives. The arts allow her to “see” the world from perspectives that include a variety of dimensions. It’s the ability to allow herself to free-think that helps a Sacred Heart woman become a problem solver which, in essence, is her goal as a citizen of the world. In Theatre specifically, one must be flexible and adaptable. No matter how much rehearsal and preparation one puts into a performance, the intrusion of the unexpected is always present. Therefore, a young woman’s experiences in theater allow her to develop flexibility and adaptability which are essential qualities in today’s world. Since change is inevitable in a global society, a young woman’s ability to adapt ultimately contributes to her success.
