Dramabiz is the best theatre magazine I have ever read. When I read the first issue, I thought "a theatre magazine for the rest of us" You also might subtitle it "what works and what doesn't". Going from melodrama in Arizona to Las Vegas to Broadway without the "class distinctions" is so refreshing. If our theatre schools taught the stuff I am learning from your magazine, we would have ten times the amount of live theatre in this country. Keep up the great work. - TimBen Boydston, Executive and Artistic Director,Canyon Theatre Guild

Costume designers often are called upon to create clothing for a variety of shows set in many different time periods. Each time period has its own unique set of details that must be properly interpreted for a successful costume, and it's important that the look be correct not only for the time period but for the age, gender, and socioeconomic class of the character wearing it. With a bit of research, however, it's possible to re-create the fashions of just about any place and time.

Online Guide to the History of Theater >>>
The terminology theater, meaning a place for viewing, originated in Ancient Greece some 5000 years back. Theater is a branch of performing arts that focuses on live performances by actors, which creates a self-contained drama. Since its inception, theater has taken many forms that involve dance, gestures, and pantomime combined with various other performing arts to portray a single artistic form. Based on the type of performance, theater has broadly been classified into 3 categories, which are drama, musical theater and comedy. They emerged at different times in the history of theater and slowly progressed to the technically advanced modern day theater. The various categories have been shared here with discussion on different types of theater right from their origin.

Through the McKnight and Jerome Foundations and others, The Center awards over $500,000 each year in residencies, commissions, contest prizes and development funds. About a dozen college theater residencies are facilitated each year for Core member writers through the national New Plays On Campus program. The Center commissions a playwright of national significance annually through the Playwrights' Center McKnight Commission and Residency program.

Tragedies and Comedies of Ancient Greek Theatre >>>
If youve ever seen the smiling and frowning masks used to represent theater and the dramatic arts, youre looking at a tribute to the culture of ancient Greece. The Greeks influence on theater and literature is still found in the plays, movies, and books we enjoy today. No one is sure where exactly Greek dramas got their start; it could be through epic poetry or traditional rituals. We do know that Aristotle developed the first dramatic theory, which he explained in his work Poetics. In Poetics, Aristotle separated theater into three categories: comedy, drama, and satyr plays. The traditions and tropes of these genres appear in Shakespeares work and in countless modern plays and stories.
