If you're new to the theatre then you've probably heard a lot of confusing new terms used around you. Never fear! We're compiling a dictionary of these terms, to help you work out what's going on.

If you've got any terms you want explained that we don't have, or if you want to give us an explanation of a term then get in touch – we're waiting for your call! You can use the comment form.

The stuff listed here is all serious theatre terms – you may also want to look at some of the MUGSS in-jokes, since they'll get used backstage too...
