Transcript of The Importance Greek Theater

The term thespian was coined by the greeks who created greek theater for There festivals honoring their many gods. One god, Dionysus, was honored with an unusual festival called the City Dionysia. The revelry-filled festival was led by drunken men who would sing and play in choruses to welcome Dionysus. Tribes competed against one another in performances, and the best show would have the honor of winning the contest, and the goat.
