Thrust Stage

A thrust stage extends into the audience on three sides. It also links to the backstage area by its up stage. A thrust stage includes many benefits one being that the intimacy between performers and the audience, this can create a connection and makes the whole production interesting. Entrances onto a thrust are most readily made from backstage, although some theatres provide for performers to enter through the audience using vomitory entrances. By exposing all the sides to the audience excluding a backstage relies entirely on entrances in the auditorium or from under the stage. As the audience can view the performance from a variety of angles and perspectives it is normal for blocking, props and scenery to be considered and ensure that no angle is blocked.
