ART & DRAMA
Asked by Danny

What are the different types of stage directions?

There are quite a few stage directions. Here's a few: Proscenium stage: A stage where the audience sits on one side only is called a proscenium stage (you might know this as end-on staging). The audience faces one side of the stage directly, and normally sits at a lower height. In-the-round stage: An in-the-round stage is positioned at the centre of the audience - ie there is audience around the whole stage. This type of stage creates quite an intimate atmosphere, and is good for drama that needs audience involvement. Traverse Stage: A stage where the audience sits on two sides is called a traverse stage. Again, this type of stage is good for creating an intimate atmosphere.
