A theatre performance is seen as an art form and when you go to the theatre it is a wonderful opportunity to experience this live. Some people in this modern world question why theatre is important and the simple answer is that it promotes creativity amongst individuals. London theatre shows are very popular with the public, some say the best west end shows are in London. 

When people attend the theatre they make an effective emotional connection to the roots of the performance.

Theatre performances are good for forming new opinions, solving problems better, perseverance and discipline. According to various studies, art is important in communities because it is linked with improved academic performance. Performing arts is useful to children and will help them with subjects such as Math and English.

Here are a few characteristics that make a great theatre performance:

  1. A great theatre performance is one where the characters are compelling. The characters will be the most recognised part of the theatre performance. They are the people that act out the plot and deal with the conflict and problems of the plot. The audience will mostly be interested in learning more about the character. Theatre performances are great when the characters are likable and have charisma even if they are villains. 

 

  1. The plot is the most important part of the theatre performance because it is telling the story. The playwright will organise a set of events which will create tension and suspense amongst the characters. This will tease the audience and keep them on their toes. The plot looks at all the problems that the characters will face whether they are internal or external.

 

  1. Music is very important it can be the difference between a great theatre performance and a mediocre one. Theatre performances usually have music and rhythm to help with how the story is told.

 

  1. A great theme can really help theatre performances, the theme is about the idea of the play. Some of the best theatre performances have multiple themes but always have one theme that will override the other to dominate the story.
