Theater Fun Facts

Theater began in 500 B.C. in Greece. Throughout the ages, theater has been used to record history, depict religious stories, and spread information.

Today, Broadway shows alone sell over $1 billion in tickets and support 85,000 jobs – everyone from the playwright, to the sound technician, to the set designer.

When visiting the theater, discuss what jobs people can have at the theater and the process of producing a stage play. Ask if the show offers a Q&A or behind the scenes opportunities.
