Globe Trivia Up to 3000 people would flock to the theatre and its grounds There were no actresses. Female characters had to be played by young boys with high pitched voices and no facial hair. The acting profession was not a credible one and it was unthinkable that any

woman would appear in a play. A crest displaying Hercules bearing the globe on his shoulders together with the motto : "Totus mundus agit histrionem" ( the whole world is a playhouse)was displayed a top

the theatre This phrase was slightly re-worded in the William Shakespeare play As You Like It "All the worlds a stage" which was performed at the Globe Theater. Globe Theatres Stage The stage was build on 3 levels: a) A platform with a trap-door for the main action b) A second level for windows and balconies as part of the

scenery c) A third level for representing heaven They did not have elaborate scenery or special lighting effects, but they did have very elaborate costumes Plays took place at 2:00 p.m. because they had no artificial lighting

Elizabethan Audiences

Shakespeares plays drew in all types of people from the rich aristocracy of London to the working-class men to the unemployed to Queen Elizabeth The Elizabethan general public (the Commoners) referred to as groundlings would pay 1 penny to stand in the 'Pit' of the Globe Theater. They were known to be a rowdy group that would feel no shame in throwing vegetables and garbage at the stage and actors if they play did not hold their interest. The pit could hold up to 600 people jammed in.

Citizens with more money (students, merchants and noblity) would pay to sit on benches and balconies. Rich nobles could watch the play from a chair set on the side of the Globe stage itself Elizabethan Audiences Elizabethan audiences were temperamental and demanding of the play. They wanted a rapid pace of action, and they were

superstitious, and as such, often demanded this type of action on the stage They also enjoyed Shakespearean comedies as they provided an escape from their own lives. (Similar to the reasons we watch soap operas, sitcoms, movies, and reality TV. Shakespeare performed many

of his plays at The Globe Theatre including: Julius Caesar (1599) Hamlet (1600-1601), Twelfth Night (1601), Richard II (February 7th 1601) Troilus and Cressida (1601-1602),

Alls Well That Ends Well (circa 1602), Timon of Athens (c1604), King Lear (1605), Macbeth (1606), Pericles, Prince of Tyre (1607) and Henry VIII in 1613. In 1613, the Globe Theatre caught fire during the production of Henry VIII and burned to the ground Rebuilt in 1614, it was closed by the

Puritans in 1642, and demolished in 1644. Shakespeare's Globe Theatre reopened in 1997. Globe Theatre fire The canon used for special effects, such as heralding great entrances, was loaded with gunpowder and wadding. The thatched roof caught on fire and the Globe
