TERMINOLOGY 2/28/07 1. The House: where the audience sits 2. The Voms: aisle through which the audience enters to their seats and the actors can make an entrance (vomitorium) 3. House Manager: Manage the house, work closely with the box office, make sure there are ushers, and weigh the house 4. Weigh the House: even ticket distribution throughout the house 5. Late Comers: people who arrive late to the theater – have to wait in the lobby til a cue – ushers show the way for the late comers (if you are beyond the ‘late comer cue’ you cannot see the show) 6. Legs: curtains used in order to hide wings 7. Wings : the offstage areas – on either side of the theatre 8. Teasers : the top curtain used to hide the instruments 9. Foot Lights : came into popularity when we used gas lights – breaks the illusion of realism – seen in beauty pageants and concerts – lights used to get rid of shadows, placed at the foot of the stage 10. Special : a certain light illuminating a moment in the play (the rest of the lights fade onstage in order to shift the audience’s attention to a specific thing) 11. Follow Spot : spotlight which follows the actor across the stage, rarely used in ‘real’ productions – used a lot in musicals, concerts, and for the occasional performer 12. Quick Change
