-The audience would eat and drink food during the performances

-Many of the people on the lower floor would shout at the actors

-The poor audience members referred to as groundlings, would have to pay a penny, (which was almost a day’s wage) just to stand in front of the stage to watch the plays
-The richer patrons would pay to sit in the covered galleries (one of the three balcony’s of roofed galleries. The galleries had rows of wooden seats, were accessed from a back corridor and had a roof offering shelter from outside weather). The prices would be half a crown (one crown is 60 pennies).

-Many of the rich people went to the theatre just ‘to be seen’
-Held a capacity of 1500 people in the audience. Up to 3000 people would go to the theatre grounds.
Fun Fact: The Globe Theatre burnt down in 1613 when a special effect on stage went wrong. The source of the fire was from a cannon and it took less than two hours to burn down the theater completely.

No one was hurt from the fire, except for a man whose burning trousers were put out with a bottle of beer!
