Well there are scenes and acts. There are usually two or three acts to a play, and in between the acts the audience take a break. The scenes usually change when the setting changes or new characters are on stage.

What parts did the actors in Shakespeare's play?

This question makes no sense. If you mean "What parts did the actors in Shakespeare's company play?", the actors in Shakespeare's company played the parts assigned to them. "You, Will Kemp, will play Falstaff and you, John Sincklo, will play Poins." We do not know exactly which parts in the plays played by Shakespeare's company were played by which actors, with a few exceptions. We know, for example, that Will Kemp played the part of Peter in Romeo and Juliet. We can guess that he played Falstaff too.If you mean, "What parts did the actors in Shakespeare's play play?", there are a few plays in which there are actors as characters in the play, notably Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Love's Labour's Lost. In Hamlet, the Player King plays the king and the Player Queen plays the queen and one of the other actors plays Lucianus. In Midsummer Night's Dream, Bottom plays Pyramus, Flute plays Thisbe, Snout plays Wall, Starveling plays Moonshine, and Snug plays the Lion. And of course Will Kemp would have played Bottom, who was playing Pyramus.
