                                                                          The word Theater means a “place for seeing”. Theatres can be different - Drama Theatres, Opera  and Ballet Theatre, Operetta Theatres, Puppet Theatres, Musical Comedy Theatres.


 The visitors usually buy tickets in the ticket box offices.                                                                       When you go in, you enter the foyer, and then you come to the cloak-room, where you can leave your coats and hats. 

You can also take opera glasses there and buy the programme to know the cast.


                                         After that you go to the theatre hall. The person who meets you at the entrance is usher. You must show your ticket to him / her.  He /she shows you where to sit in the hall.                                      When you enter the hall, you can see the beautiful stage curtain.                         The performance usually starts at 7 p.m.



There are different seats in the hall. They are in the stalls, in the box, in the dress circle, in the balcony, or in the gallery. The price of the seats  is different. The cheapest ones are in the gallery, the most expensive — in the stalls, in the box.



You take your seats in the hall.  The third bell rings, the curtain goes up, the lights go down. The performance begins and you become a spectator.


The orchestra pit is next to the stage. This is where the musicians sit and play the music.





Usually the play has some acts. Between the acts of the play there are intervals.                                               The spectators leave their seats and go to the buffet where they can eat a cake and drink a glass of lemonade or juice. During the interval they discuss the performance and the acting of the actors and actresses.





At the end of the performance when the curtain falls, the audience bursts into applause if the play is a great success.
