Stages and Performing Spaces
Actors present theatrical
performances in a building
known as a THEATRE,
which usually contains a
STAGE.
Stages and Performing Spaces
The word THEATRE is
derived from the Greek
word theatron, meaning
“seeing place,” or a place to
view a performance.

The STAGE, which is often a
raised platform, serves as a
performing space for actors,
and a focal point for the
members of the audience.

Today’s stages are very different
in design and construction from
their historical ancestors,
however, they still serve the
same purpose: To provide a
venue for a group of people
(audience) to gather and view a
performance.
