A theater poster is different in terms of structure compared to a movie poster. Here are a few of their differences:
- A theater poster focuses more on the theme of the play rather than the actors who will top bill the production. Posters used for theater production usually needs to interpret the emotion that is expected to be felt by the people who are to watch the play.
- A theater poster can be of various kinds and does not follow any format. You can see more creativity on theater poster, though it may still vary depending on certain circumstances.
- Most of the time, theater posters include all the show dates and the time that the audience may go to view the production. In a typical movie poster, only the first date of showing is seen in the information.
Just like any other things, theater posters have evolved through time. Before, it only consisted of illustrations and other texts than can give information to people. Nowadays, they already adapt to different marketing and technological strategies for the theater play to generate more sales. Theater posters now have photographs and other creative streaks to attract more people in looking at it so that they’ll know more about the production.
