Transcript of Ancient Greek Theater
Written by Jada Williams.
Zeus- Mr. Schick
Ares- Matt Ryan
Athena- Jada Williams
Apollo- Joe Novak
Aphrodite- Alexa DiPeso Large masks were worn to exaggerate facial features and emotions. Any kind of mask was made of wood, linen, or mud. The mask enabled the actor to appear in various roles and the mask covered the entire face. The mouth opening was very small preventing the mouth to be seen during a performance . The mask itself was not covered in hair but the ears were. It was very important for the actors to hear clearly. Thespis was the earliest recorded playwright known to use masks. Masks were worn in Ancient Greece during the Golden Age around 500-300 B.C. The symbol of theater comes from the Greek masks of comedy and tradegy. Works Cited: Ancient Greek Theater.

It wasn't until later that actors came into the picture. The first actors’ names were Aeschylos, Thespis, and Sophocles. They were the main characters. Other people involved with the show were called followers.
