WikiProject Theatre Welcome to WikiProject Theatre! The goal of this project is to improve all articles relating to
theatre, making Wikipedia one of the best online resources on the subject.
As it currently stands, the vast majority of these articles are in need of some serious attention. While many of the important topics do have existing articles, the quality of these can be quite poor. If you would like to participate in the project, please sign up below, look for jobs in the
to-do list, and join in with project-related discussions at the
Any and all articles related to theatre on Wikipedia, including, but not limited to:
plays) Theatrical biographies (such as
theatrical producers and theatre companies) Theatre history (including
Epic theatre etc.) Modern theatre (i.e.
Theatre of Cruelty,
physical theatre etc.)
Theatres, i.e. theatre buildings, venues and structures
Theatre is a very broad topic! There are several descendant and related projects to help organise work on theatrical articles:
Other related WikiProjects include
To improve the quality of articles on theatre, bringing articles on important topics up to featured article standard.
To create articles to cover the topic of theatre comprehensively, including articles on non-western theatre.
To make Wikipedia the finest, most comprehensive resource of theatre topics available online.
The entire subject and Wikipedia's coverage of it is intended to be summarized in the
. It in turn is part of
Outline of theatre Wikipedia's outline system which is one of
Wikipedia's main contents systems.
If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.
Please look it over and fill-in missing topics.
While analyzing the outline, please consider the following questions (and fix the outline as needed):
Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject?
Does the outline help understand the relationships between the topics presented in the best way possible?
The overall purpose of the outline is to help readers comprehend the subject by showing what belongs to it, and within the subject what belongs to what. It is a taxonomy of the subject, and also serves as a table of contents and navigation aid to browse Wikipedia's articles (and article sections) about the subject.
It is also a useful tool for the WikiProject to analyze, plan, develop, and revise theatre-related material. It is a hub from which to organize related topics. It was built as a "
reverse outline", a
structural model of an existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes.
