Transcript of Greece Theater

The theater started out with festivals honoring their gods. At the early Greek festivals, the actors, directors and dramatists were all the same person. After some time, only three actors were allowed to perform in each play. Later few non-speaking roles were allowed to perform on stage. Due to limited number of actors allowed on-stage, the chorus evolved into a very active part of Greek Theater. Music was often played during the choru's delivery of its lines.
