Intro Notes September 7, 2013 The actor is the primary artist in the theatre experience. But it takes many artists to make a full theatre experience happen and these include the following: Producer (the money person, the one who pulls things together) the Playwright, the Director (a modern concept but a version existed from the beginning) Designers including set, costumes, make up, sound and lights and then depending on the nature and the level of the production (Broadway vs High School) PR, Advertising, Casting Directors etc. There are three types of stages on which the play can take place: The oldest and the first theatre was the circle or theatre in the round. The Thrashing circle (where the wheat and corn was made into grain) in which there were fertility rites to honor the god (s) of fertility especially for the Greeks the god Dionysus. It was in this circle which would eventually add an altar for animal sacrifice (usually a goat hence the word Tragedy is sometimes translated as “Goat Song”) that the first plays were performed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
