THRUST STAGE
  • In theatre, a thrust stage (also known as a platform stage or open stage) is one that extends into the audience on three sides and is connected to the backstage area by its upstage end.
  • Many of the works of Shakespeare were first performed on the thrust stage of the Globe Theatre and lend themselves to such a stage design in modern times as well.

What is a thrust theater?

In theater, a thrust stage (also known as a platform stage or open stage [1]) is one that extends into the audience on three sides and is connected to the backstage area by its up stage end. A thrust has the benefit of greater intimacy between performers and the audience than a proscenium, while retaining the utility of a backstage area. Entrances onto a thrust are most readily made from backstage, although some theatres provide for performers to enter through the audience using vomitory entrances.


How is the proscenium stage different from the shakespearan stage in the globe theatre?

The stage in the Globe and its many contemporary theatres (the Rose, the Curtain, the Theatre, the Red Bull, the Fortune, the Swan, the Hope etc.) was a thrust stage. It thrust into the audience who sat in a semicircle around it. The back of the thrust stage is a wall leading to the dressing rooms and the backstage. The other three sides of the stage face the audience. A proscenium stage is, as it were, a box cut into a wall. It is open to the audience on only one side, like a window framed by the proscenium arch. Clearly, the feel of the two kinds of stage is different: with the proscenium stage the audience feels that they are peeking through a window at what is going on within, but with the thrust stage, the action is going on in the midst of the audience. The audience feels more connected to the action.
