Summary/Abstract: This article is an attempt to look at school theatre as a part of a broader structure that is school culture. The basis of the accepted starting point is the belief that the theatre can be: 1) set in performative activities, which require treating it as part of the experience of school culture participants, 2) an expression of the interaction of school culture, which manifests itself in the variety of school theatre over time. The text presents the changing goals of school theatre based on socio-cultural contexts. Particular attention is given to the author of the twentieth-century period, which is considered to be one of the most revolutionary in practice and a preview of school theatre. However, the legacy of those times is not used. Recent research and reports on theatrical education of children present a picture of the low activity of pupils in the field of school theatre work. A contemporary attitude results from the desire of a rapid and spectacular success and to shaping the receiving attitudes.
