Abstract

Ketoprak, as one of the traditional performing arts, is highly potential to be reactualized, reconstructed, and refunctionalized. Ketoprak always adjusts itself to the audiences’ “taste” in order to preserve and inherit it to the next generation. This preserverance is important since ketoprak is closely related to character building in schools which eventually ketoprak can improve the educational quality within the schools in terms of the students’ character quality; holistic, integrated, and balanced. This research aims to describe ketoprak as cultural heritage and describe the character building values within it. The method used was descriptive qualitative. In this research, the qualitative data were thoroughly and analytically described. The range of description includes the development of ketoprak as well as ketoprak as cultural heritage and character building. The findings of the research show that ketoprak is one of the cultural heritage to which perseverance has to be done, for the character building values are rich within it. Implication of this research is that there are efforts from many parties to preserve ketoprak as cultural heritage and a means of character building which are important for society.
