Theatre Quizzes & Trivia

To take these quizzes or not take these quizzes? That is the question you will naturally ask yourself when viewing this topic, even if you will not use the exact same words Shakespeare saw fit to make everything seem more ceremonious, and more like the theatre. This fine art that uses live performers to present the experience of a real or imagined event before a live audience in a specific place has been around for thousands of years.

If you are a person inclined to savor this type of activity, you will appreciate questions such as “How does the theatre of Ancient Rome differ from that of Classical and Hellenistic Greece?”, “What Eastern theatrical traditions do you know?”. “What are the five types of theatrical genre employed by play writers?”, and “How would you define the art of Stagecraft?”

This exam will test your learned knowledge of theatre 7/8 at the end of the school year.
