Greek Theatres

Greek Theatres were built into a cliff or hillside. Actors wore masks to get into character and to show an expression much clearer than a normal face would. The chorus (people who act out the story) often wore large padded clothes or gigantic wings to make themselves stand out because the stage was tiny compared to the amount of space where the seats were. Most Greek Cities had an open-air ampetheatre where anyone could watch plays even if they were poor because it was free to go to.The masks had large mouth holes to extend the volume of sound.
The Greeks invented the Olympic games but didn't do it between countries but between different places in Greece. They didn't have so many sports as nowdays but their rules were very different so the games were more dangerous. If you killed your apponent in Wrestling then you lost and the dead person won.
