Disabling your cell phone
Turn off your cell phones best at the time of your sitting or when you arrive at the theater. If someone thinks vibrations are not heard, they are very wrong. Turning off means turning off. Technique has not gone so far as to eliminate any possible frequency connection with the technologies used in the theater, especially those for sound. Remember to turn off your phone again if you turned it on during a break to deal with an SMS or a call. Whoever writes silently on SMS in a darkened auditorium, can be sure that his face is illuminated by light, just like the faces of actors on the stage.
Please do not take a visit to the theater in case of a stronger cold or other illness. If you do not get the fact that you can infect others, remember that you will be disturbing the actors and the other spectators by coughing and spitting.
During the performance
Do not capture or record audio and video recordings. In addition to being forbidden, you will be disturbing by not only by this activity, but also, for example, the shutter sound or the beep sound. Owners of a camera built in mobile phones often do not watch the activation of lightning.
During the show, do not ruin fellow-spectators and actors (the actors have very good ears) by any commenting of the action on the stage or communicating the impressions to the ones near you. Leave it for the break. The culmination of the embarrassment (and an example of the cultural outlook) is to make a joyous remark when an actor you know from an endless series appears on the stage. “It’s him / it’s not him / it’s…”, you just don’t need to announce that.
Loud laughter or other audible manifestations of enthusiasm definitely do not help (on the contrary, the actors will only strengthen and try to perform. Just keep in mind that you are not a the only person in the hall when your reactions are too loud at the given moments due to the events on stage.
Do not consume anything during the show, even if you do not have a sip during the break, if the hall is not deliberately designed to eat during the evening. When you start pulling sweats out of your handbag and unpacking a slick stool or tilting a ratcheting box with chocolate bars, the idea of your killing goes into a range of meters. The ones who cannot chew anything without your mouth closed, or with a loud expression, note that you are disturbing everyone, even if you sit in the last row on the edge.
Applause is to thank the actors for their performances. Whoever applauds inadequately, with his hands on his knees as if he doesn’t care because it is not visible, he must know that is extremely rude to the actors and other audiences. This is gone out of line, while the other audiences are still applauding and the actors are bowing. However, in certain circumstances, annoyance may be an expression of opinion on a disastrous performance. You can, but you do not have to participate. Either the performance of such an emotion is in you or is simply not.
Dress code – eternal question
Yes, the visit to the theater is still perceived as a glamour moment and a social event. She’s asking for the dress code, and the misconduct will again hurt the person who will slip out of it with a t-shirt, a sweater, a jeans, a backpack… To visit the theater is always a dark suit (for men) and a social dress (for the ladies). During the last years, however, everyone has long tolerated even less formal suits, shirts and even simple elegance, but not really in the case of visiting, for example, historic buildings of the National Theater. Looking at the dress code seems too complicate theaters of other forms, let’s call them scenes for alternative arts, in which, as a feast for the eye, the audience will be in a suit. So, simply and simply, always adjust the style of clothing to the environment you plan to visit with your ticket.
The lady sits on the right hand of the gentleman (unless we sit on the edge of the row and the exception is, of course, a situation where it is better to see from the left, or if it is a place entirely on the right edge of the row).
When you walk through a row, the rule is always that you are facing those who make room for you. A word like “with permission” and “thank you” is desirable to use. If you have tickets in the middle of a row, think it would be good to settle before those on the edge.
