Theater is often considered a social event, because shows have set runs, and many people attend the show before it stops playing in the theatres. Many people often attend shows as a group.
The set used for Vernon God Little was highly symbolic and simplistic; when we walked into the theatre we could visually see that there were flowers, cards and memorable items attached on the audiences seats above our heads, which already created a sombre atmosphere around the theatre.
What do you think of when you hear the word “theater”? You might immediately think of Shakespeare, you might think of actors, singers and dancers, or you may even think of a movie theatre. Whatever it is that may come to mind, you might not realize the beneficial impact that participation in theatrical programs can have on just about anyone. I myself have gained from participation. The benefits of theater are many and can range from developing personal and professional skills, to conquering shyness, and even to therapeutic applications.
Today's effects of television on the theatre are big in good and bad ways. The good thing television can do for the theatre is advertise and show clips from the play. People also like to hear what other people think and there are shows on television that will do that. Television can also show the plays in full, which can be good and or bad. The way it could be good is seeing the play on television could make someone want to see it live, than again once someone sees it they may never want to see it again. Another thing that goes along with television is a VCR if someone wants to see something bad enough they can go rent it or tape it for every time they want to see it in the future. Now there are even channels that are dedicated to showing only stuff from the stage.
From the Ancient Greeks, to the Romans, and all the way to present day New York City, theatre is a tradition that has been passed down for thousands of years. The art of expression through live performance is something that will never go out of style. The history of Broadway is a rollercoaster with flourishing highs and devastating lows, but they both have significantly contributed to shaping the industry into the prosperous business that it is today.
The audience roars, the curls roll closed. You can hear the pants from the actors and the people cheering and congratulations as they all walk into the black box. There is a certain rush you get of being there, the lights, the sounds, it all makes your blood pump and your body just get a rush of adrenaline. Theatre has been a big part of my life, and always will be. But it is the people who you do it with and cause that makes it all so
Theatre for me has now become something I absolutely love. Being a part of this group has allowed me to find who I am. Theatre is truly a passion of mine whether I’m on stage or with a headset on calling the show backstage. If someone had told me four years ago that my experiences in theatre would shape the person I am today I would have laughed hard. It’s what I can finally call mine. No one can take that from
Theater has been a platform that has been used to deepen our communication and understanding of the complexities of the world around us. It teaches us through language, movement, and the establishment of intimate relationships that play to the contagious nature of emotions.
The live performance I attended was on June 3rd. The concert was a part of the Downtown Tallahassee Sundown Summer Concert Series at Cascades Park. Everyone was pretty much invited to come, children and adults. The concert started a seven pm and ended ten at night, making the concert about a good three hours. Although I have been to the park many times and seen a live performance, this was actually my first time attending a concert at Cascades Park. The performers performed in the Capital City Amphitheater area which seats like over 1,000 people I believe.
“Acting is behaving truthfully under imaginary circumstances” said by Stanford Meisner. Theatre is an area of arts where you can be free from reality and imagine the impossible. Some of my favorite things about theatre are, the people that are involved, how helpful theatre is and how helpful everyone is, then my last thing is how much fun we have. One of my top favorite things about theatre is the people that are involved within it. Every person has a different personalities, that put together makes a new and neat experience. Theatre is an important part of my life and I enjoy every minute, while I’m there.
Starting off my group tried to use the list of movement vocabulary. That didn’t work out so instead we decided to focus on what our theme or story would be. Eventually we settled on two topics, unrequited love and love at first sight.
Musical Theatre is an art that I always envisioned myself pursing at the collegiate level and what I want to make a career out of as well. My perfect musical theatre program that I would want, would be a program that would help me to achieve a better understanding of who I am as a musical theatre artist first and then hopefully I can expand my artistic goals and further develop myself through whichever institution that I am attending. The musical theatre training that I have received in high school through my creative arts high school New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) whether its been in dance, vocal, acting, or the productions that I have been cast
The theatre community has played a very significant role in my life and in the development of who I’ve become. There is no other community that has people competing directly against each other for roles, yet can still foster positive environments and interactions between people. People in this community are generally kind and accepting of others. Rather than being evaluated by the color of your skin or by your sexual orientation, people look inside of you and truly can see who you are as a human being. Many “theatre kids” are often ostracized by others in their schools because they are labelled as “quirky” or “extra”, but the theatre community allows unique people to grow as a person and develop their own sense of self, rather than being
Drama is one of the most intriguing forms of literature. Unlike typical literature, drama is put into the form of a script in which actors must take the roles of the characters and act out their given dialogue in front of an audience. Drama is particularly composed of dialogue, the lines spoken by the characters, stage directions, the actions in which the actor must take, and scenes, the events of each play which are acted out. Plays do not typically contain narrators that tell the story. Instead the actors depict the characters within a story and present it to an audience. Dramatic theater, presumably started within ancient Greece, where the citizens performed presentations as a devotion to religious gods or to “mark the coming of spring.”
In a time when films and a variety of entertainments are accessible through digital forms, some people may still go see the performances of live theatre just for the experience. Like the textbook mentions, theatre is living, and each performance is unique to the moment. Because individuals who regularly go to theatre performances are much fewer than those who would rather see a movie, theatre helps establish an identity that sets the theatre goers apart from the rest and creates a community that unites people who share similar tastes in art. Although in the past, theatre has been widely seen by people of all income levels, in today's society, someone who regularly goes to the theatre is stereotypically associated with a prestigious background and a traditional taste in art. In this sense, going to theatre can be a display of social status. A more important reason is that theatre offers an opportunity for the audience to interact with the performers on the stage. This makes the audience feel involved and the performance more compelling than one that is on digital media. The
