THEATRE Edit

MISSION:Edit

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

DEFINITION:Edit

Theatre is a form of entertainment where a story, theme, or sensation, is expressed through a combination of acting, song, sounds, movement, dance, etc. Theatre performance is a means of communication for adults and children.

SUB-GENRES:Edit

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.
