Welcome to the Theatre Dictionary’s conversation about the term booth.
On booth’s official page, we have defined the term as “the area of the theatre where lights, sound, backstage communication and other technical elements are controlled during the show.”
But now we want to know what the term booth means to you. You can use the comments section to tell us.
– Have you ever worked a theatre booth? What kinds of technical elements were you responsible for?
– What’s the biggest technical disaster you’ve ever witnessed during a show?
If you’d like to make a video of your own about the term booth, then we’d love to hear from you! Just email us through our contact page. Tell us about yourself and why you want to make a video. We’ll be in touch ASAP and give you details on how to add your video to the Theatre Dictionary!
