Overview

Filled with detailed explanations, captivating illustrations, and entertaining trivia, this clearly written, lively, and uniquely-designed book is a first-of-its-kind introduction to the world of the Theatre, from the box office to backstage, and beyond. From one side of the book, the reader enters via the front door, where the people and activities of the "front of house" can be examined. From the book's other side, the reader enters the "Stage Door," where the behind-the-scenes world of the "Back of house" is revealed.

In exploring this visually-inviting "theatre of the mind," readers encounter the people, places, occupations, and equipment of the theatre world, and have the opportunity to investigate them all. From the box office and the Usher Staff to the Dressing Rooms and the Backstage doorman, the reader may wander at will within this one-of-a-kind world, discovering the wonders of theatre all along the way.

    a great educational tool

    I plan to require this book for my college level Intro to Theatre classes as well as a night class in theatre which attracts many non-traditional students who have never seen a play or a theatre.

    Awesome behind the scenes look at theatre

    For those of us who have 'done' theatre this is a GREAT into to it for us to show our children. The best part is that includes the people BEHIND the scenes. Not just the actors.
