It includes various genres, including comedy, drama, and tragedy. Theatre is different from other art forms because of its reliance on the performers’ use of voice and body language to convey meaning. Unlike the majority of arts
forms, theatre does not require the artist to provide a product that can be sold or traded with others in order to obtain fame or fortune. Instead,
the performances are typically open to the public for free with the hope that
audience members will donate money before leaving.
This section is about theatre as an art form (history/types) and how it’s different from other arts forms like music or painting (donations).
Theatre is the art of representing human dramatic performance onstage or in front of a live audience.
Theatre includes many different forms, which include but are not limited to: drama, comedy, improvisational theatre, mime, pantomime and physical theatre.

Theatre is an art form that is unique to human beings. It is a live performance in front of an audience.
Theatre has had a great influence on the cultures of many countries. It has also been used to convey social, political, and religious messages.
Theatre can be divided into three categories: drama, opera, and ballet. Drama uses words to tell a story while opera uses music to tell a story with some dialogue. Ballet is focused on movement rather than words or music.
