Grade 4-7-This colorful, attractively designed introduction to the history and development of the Greek theater opens with scenes of the activity and excitement that precede a hypothetical performance of Oedipus the King during the festival known as City Dionysia. They are followed by four-to-eight page chapters on the early history of Greek drama, minor festivals, theater design, actors and choruses, brief biographical sketches on a few playwrights, and the continuing influence of Greek theater. The informative text is choppy at times and one page actually ends with a partial sentence. Numerous reproductions and good-quality, color photographs of ancient sites and artifacts depicting scenes of plays add visual appeal. Colorful boxed quotes from classical plays appear throughout. Don Nardo's Greek and Roman Theatre (Lucent, 1995) is for older students.
