This study demonstrates how theatre as representation is a successful teaching and learning tool for field educators in the area of educational administration. Theatre as Representation (TAR), is introduced as a provocation means or tool for school administrators (appointed or elected) to further their knowledge and field experience in the governance of their institutions. Using the subject vehicle of 'executive succession', a supporting literature, and research methodology (data collection, analysis and its findings), an original dramatic script was created entitled Transitional Wars. It was performed in front of an audience of educators. Reaction to the presentation was collected and analyzed. The conclusion was that theatre as representation is a successful teaching and learning tool for field educators in the area of educational administration. It was clear that promotion was a 'political act' where several stakeholders fought for their interests. There were three sequential episodes to this study. First was the collection of data collection, its analysis, and conclusions. Second was the transcendence protocol - the movement from the data conclusions to the original dramatic scenario - the evolution from science to art form; its creation, production, and performance to in-service administrators and educators. Third was the overall analysis to judging its effectiveness as an administrator professional development tool.
