Western theatre conventions

Write a 500 word paper entitled, “Audience Members for Dummies.” You will address a reader who has presumably never been to the theatre before.


Your “manual” should address Western theatre conventions (which refers to  the NORMS of theatre in our society today) including: 1)what the audience can expect to see (the space itself, stage, production, etc) 2)how they are expected to (and not to) behave, and 3) the importance of their role in the theatre community ( Western theatre conventionsinclude also  how an audience member might feel, or what they might do after seeing a performance).


Feel free to get creative including pictures, video, links, etc in your assignment.


You may include information from the text, must-see links, and outside research.  Please use proper citations (MLA format) for any direct quotes from published materials.
