Filled with detailed explanations, captivating illustrations, and entertaining trivia, this lively, and uniquely designed book offers a comprehensive introduction to the world of the theater from the box office to backstage, and beyond.

Thomas Schumacher, Joel Grey

Readers enter via the front door, where the people and activities of the “front of house” can be examined. And then it’s on to the behind-the-scenes magic of the “back of house” is revealed.

Thomas Schumacher, Joel Grey

Using the successful array of Disney’s shows as examples, readers encounter the people, places, occupations, and equipment of the theater world, and have the opportunity to investigate them all. From the box office and the usher staff to the dressing rooms and the backstage doorman, the reader may wander at will within this one-of-a-kind world, discovering the wonders of theater all along the way.
