Theatre (or theater, see spelling differences) is the branch of the performing arts defined by Bernard Beckerman head of Hofstra University's department of drama, as what "occurs when one or more persons]], isolated in time and/or space, present themselves to another or others."[1] By this broad definition, theatre has existed since the dawn of man, as a result of human tendency for storytelling. Since its inception, theatre has come to take on many forms, often utilizing elements such as speech, gesture, music, dance, and spectacle, combining the other performing arts, often as well as the visual arts, into a single artistic form.
