Tiger Tiger TheaterTiger Theater,
a Tiger Elective Adventure

The Tiger Den Leader guide says, “Children love to pretend.  They start at a young age by imitating what is around them.  By the time they reach school age, they are ready for the next step:  creating their own adventures to share.  Theater provides an avenue to learn about public presentations and builds confidence in public speaking.  Encouraging Tigers to perform helps them to become strong speakers and leaders, both in Scouting and in their daily lives.”
