A night at the theatre


Here we are outside the theatre. It is the Library Theatre which is underneath the Central Library in Manchester. We are going to see a modern play which is very popular with theatre-goers. A lot of members of the company took part in it’s production: directors, producers, actors, scriptwriters, make-up men, stage managers, prompters, etc.

Passing through the revolving door and down the stairs we come to the box-office where the tickets are sold. Luckily we booked our seats a few weeks ago or we would not be able to get in, because for this performance all the seats had already been sold. It is so popular in the repertoire of the theatre that it is the second time the play has been produced here. It’s first performance (premiere) was in 1981.

We leave our coats in the cloak–room. At the entrance to the theatre itself an attendant in the uniform tears our theatre tickets in half. He gives us our halves back so that we can find our seats by their numbers. Another attendant shows us to our seats and sells us a programme that will tell us which parts the actors are playing and how many acts there are in the play. Then we take our seats about halfway down the auditorium.

All around us people are settling down into their seats, talking, reading their programmes, passing chocolates. Everybody is excited, looking forward to the performance. We all have a clear view of thestage because the seats are set on wide steps which slope down to the level of the stage. On the front row, you are so close you can smell the paint on the scenery but not too close to spoil your view of the actors. Even on the back row you have a perfect view of the stage because it is a small theatre.

This auditorium holds only 300 seats, but many Drama Theatres and Opera Houses are much larger. In a small theatre you can always be sure to hear and see everything and really feel that you are with the actors in everything they do and on all places they visit. But many plays are produced in very large theatres where there are sometimes so many stalls (ground-floor seats), that they are divided into orchestra stalls, centre stalls, rear stalls and circles with the pit behind them. Above, there is the dress circle, upper circle and boxes, then the balcony and, high above, the gallery, or the “gods”!

The auditorium seems to be full now. In a few minutes the play will begin. People whisper excitedly. Slowly the curtain goes up and the footlights begin to come up on the stage.
