MissionEdit

To promote the creation, performance, and appreciation of all aspects of theatre.

DefinitionEdit

Theatre is a form of entertainment whereby a story, theme, or sensation is expressed through a combination of acting, song, sounds, movement, dance, and physical objects. Theatre usually implies a live event, usually involves humans, and is almost always intended to be performed before a live audience.

Sub-genresEdit

  • Musical theatre has its origins in operetta and vaudeville, and shares some characteristics from both these genres.
  • Musical Revue is light entertainment comprising a patchwork of sketches and songs often based on a theme, but without a strong story line.
  • A play with music usually has more spoken dialogue than song and dance.
  • Jukebox Musicals are a compilation of individual songs already made famous by a songwriter or band, strung together by a (usually weak) story.
  • Rock Opera is a through-sung musical using pop music.
  • Pantomime is theatrical entertainment for the family, usually a farce or burlesque, where songs and dance feature prominently.

    I recently discovered this wiki and was saddened to see that is rather neglected. I am a big fan of theatre (particularly musicals) and believe that this wiki has loads of potential to be "something incredible" (Yeah a BOM reference...).

    As a result …
