Transcript of Costumes, props, sets in the Elizabethan theatre

COSTUMES SETS There was a cannon above the stage that was fired to signal that the play was about to begin. The cannon was only one of the special effects that were used in the Elizabethan theater. Props By; Akethzalli, Raul, Ivan and Madalyn Costumes, Props and Sets in the Elizabethan theater Decorated with braids, embroidery, pinking, slashing, puffing or enclosed with pearls, jewels, lush, lace and artificial flowers Hats were decorated with feathers and jewels They were beautifully designed and carefully maintained Costumes were important so that the audience could immediately identify an actors role Elizabethan actors used lavish costumes to help make portrayals more convincing Black would be seen as a dark, evil or mourning character
White was associated with purity
Yellow was associated with lovers Men Since woman weren't allowed to be in plays, boys would play the character of a woman The make-up they wore was lead based and highly poisonous! The young boy actors were therefore very unhealthy, had unpleasant facial skin diseases and a high proportion actually died of poisoning. Stage was known as a 3 quarter round and was a platform surrounded on sides by audience. More than 3000 people would go to see a play, and if the audience did not like it then they would throw apples at them sold by the "Apple wives" Like costumes, props were important assets for the theater companies, most of the props that the companies possessed were small, portable items.
Pigs or sheep's blood was sometimes used to add glory realism to scenes of violent deaths.
It was also bad luck to use props from the play Mecbeth in other plays. Works Cited L.K., Alchin.
