CHARTER (Proponent)
 
rec.arts.theatre.musicals:
 
Rec.arts.theatre.musicals is a new newsgroup intended to provide
a home for everyone to share their experience, ideas, thoughts,
and comments about musicals. It is a place to talk about musicals
being performed on Broadway, musicals being performed in
community theaters, musicals performed in college theaters, and
musicals being performed in community theaters.
Rec.arts.theatre.musicals is a place to discuss subsidiary issues
related to musical theater, such as cast albums and televised
performances. It is a place to talk about the actors you loved in
_______ and the actors you hated in __________. It is a place to
share gossip and tidbits about upcoming performances and a place
to ask questions about what musicals are playing where. It is a
place to ask about ticket prices.
 
Ask anyone you meet on the street, and chances are they've heard
of _Cats_, _Phantom_of_the_Opera_, _Oklahoma!, _Hair!_,
_A_Chorus_Line_, and any of the other hundreds of musicals that
get revived time after time throughout the world. Musicals such
as _Falsettos_ and _Miss Saigon_ have helped us to deal with
contemporary issues in a way not possible in any other medium,
while other shows such as _Forever_Plaid have taken us back to
the music of our youth. In all cases, the spirited song from the
stage seems to bear a magical quality that sets our toes tapping,
our lips moving, and our hearts free.
 
 
rec.arts.theatre.plays:
 
While musicals and operas seem to have captured part of the
limelight for the last few hundred years, plays have been
delighting audiences since thousands of years ago. Whether you're
a fan of the tragedies performed at the City Dionysus in 534 bc,
Roman fabula togatas of 150 bc, Sanskrit dramas of the fourth
century A.D., liturgical dramas of the early middle ages,
religious cycles of the fourteenth century, morality plays of the
sixteenth century, neoclassical theater, naturalistic theater, or
contemporary theater, rec.arts.theatre.plays is the place to
bring to light all of your dramaturgical questions and comments.
 
 
rec.arts.theatre.stagecraft:
 
This group would cover the art of stagecraft.
 
It was once said that the only thing you need for theater is some
actors and an audience, but the fact is we enjoy performances a
lot more when there is some kind of atmosphere and context. We've
grown used to seeing magic happen on the stage, but what it takes
to create that magic is a lot of technical knowledge that can
only serve the world better if it is distributed.
 
 
rec.arts.theatre.misc:
 
There are a lot of questions that clearly don't fall into the
discussion of plays, the discussion of musicals, or the discussion of
stagecraft. Rec.arts.theatre.misc is a new group intended to cover all
of these issues including but not limited to topics such as: acting,
directing, theater management, design, and stage management.
 
What is the purpose of theater? What purpose is theater going to serve
in the twenty first century? Does theater need to serve a function?
What is appropriate dress to wear to the theater? How does one go
about finding a theater? How does one spell theater?
 
This group will replace rec.arts.theatre, which will be removed after
three months if the proposal passes.
 
 
Reasons for the Proposal:
 
Many rec.arts.theatre readers and many members of the USENET theatre
community have come to feel that it is time to break theatre discussion
into chewable pieces. Kill files aren't solving the problem because
people still want to read all of the messages--they just need them
organized in such a way that it makes sense (i.e., all of the musical
messages are seperated from the play messages, all of the play messages
seperated from the stagecraft messages, etc). Prefixes have been tried,
but it hasn't worked. Many people have even left rec.arts.theatre
because it was too confusing. It is hoped that this re-organization
will provide a happy home for everyone to keep up with thier personal
interests in the theatre.
