Staging types
The audience is on three side of the stage as if the stage has been thrust forward. This can be very apparent like a cat walk or more like an extended apron stage.

The audience is positioned in front of the stage, and the stage can be looked upon like a picture frame. The ‘frame’ itself is called the Proscenium Arch. This is the style of most traditional theatres.

The audience is seated all around the stage on four sides. A few theatres in the country are permanently arranged like this. Sometimes this type of staging is referred to as being in-the-round.
