Abstract
The aim of this study is to illustrate the purpose and potential of theatre that promotes a proto-environmental agenda, or Green Theatre, in re-orienting Western behavior and mores in a direction that creates positive socio-environmental change. In correlation, this dissertation will examine the objectives and performance modes of several educational and professional theatre entities that house a distinctly unique Green agenda. The primary performances featured will include Peter Schumannís Bread and Puppet Theatre, Blue Man Groupís Tubes, performances by Koko the signing lowland gorilla, and Playmakers of Baton Rougeís production of Habitat Cats.
