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.
