The article briefly describes the history of the development of theatrical practices in education in Russia and abroad. The main dimensions of theater and drama in contemporary pedagogy are considered. The article demonstrates that various forms of theater in education are more widespread and better developed in foreign pedagogy, where theater is not limited to the framework of school disciplines as it is used as a means for providing complex solutions of problems related to development, learning and socialization. It is substantiated that in the practice of Russian schools, theater is much less in use, since it is so far applied exclusively as a means of introduction to culture, its traditions and values.
