"Welcome To The Theatre!"



1. Welcome to the theatre

For everyone to see!

There's pantomimes for kids, and shows

For older ones like me.



2. There's comedies and tragedies,

And musicals are fun.

I love those shows the best of all!

But note the lovely sun



3. Far in the east, that's Juliet,

the love of Romeo's life.

But maybe not the best love tale:

How long was she a wife?!



4. Now, look, I see a prisoner,

He's 24601.

Beware of stealing bread or you will

End up like Valjean!



5. And you will be at much a loss

Inside a musical

If you are green, you "wicked" thing!

Time for an interval.



6. Beware, a Phantom now appears

Behind his noted mask,

Will she choose Raoul, will she choose him?

A very daunting task.



7. But what a voice sweet Christine has!

A female opera star!

So beautiful and marvellous,

The opera's best by far!



8. Who knew that shows on Broadway though

Could contain puppetry?

But not the kind of puppets that

Young children ought to see!



9. They teach us all life's facts that we

Don't learn from Muppet friends!

There's schadenfreude, even porn,

but love and work and friends



10. As well. It's not all smut and jokes!

There's meaningfulness too.

We cannot always win the man

We love so very true.



11. But friends will try their best to give

Our dreams a chance of depth.

And everything is just for now

Except for tax and death.



12. Some shows teach us that dance is life.

And when our ma says no

Our feet still go! It matters not

About the size we grow.



13. Some shows have Bible teachings in

The form of all-out song.

Topped with a coat of coloured dreams

Worn by a man, wise, strong.



14. But not all shows are musicals

Or Shakespeare's crafted works.

It's not all cats or all burlesque,

'Cause any show can work!



15. It's awesome if you're on the stage,

It's cool to just go see.

In theatre you can be whatever

You wish to be!



16. So welcome to the theatre-

Please do enjoy your time!

Whether you are a fan or star,

You make the theatre shine!
