Storyboard Text

  • Aww Shucks! :(
  • NO MORE RELIGIOUS PLAYS!!!!
  • Elizabethan Drama began with Queen Elizabeth banning all Religious plays
  • Actors and playwrights moved to outdoor theaters quickly put together in courtyards and inns. They performed plays for money.
  • Puritans became angered and argued that acting for money was evil and claimed that "The devil was using the theater to lead the people astray".
  • Many of the early playwrights were university scholars. Thomas Kyd, John Lyly, and Christopher Marlowe made up "The University Wits"
  • Theaters finally began to transition into permanent buildings. In these permanent theaters the players could collect money in order to pay for costumes and and props. Players could grow their skills and make a career out of acting.
  • Elizabethan drama kept developing and transitioned again, The audiences were more elite and upper class due to the increase in the price of admission. There was also no more standing room for the groundlings who used to pay one pence for admission.
