This unique new book will open people's eyes to the power of live theatre in museum settings - its capacity to touch the heart and mind, challenge understanding, and provoke new ways of thinking about exhibits. Catherine Hughes' aim is simple: to prove that there is no more vital a tool for making a subject, period, or people come to life than drama. This solid introduction proposes a rationale and definition for museum theatre, explores its foundations, and provides a glimpse into its future. It is supported by lots of examples of existing programs - including Boston's Museum of Science - as well as numerous frameworks for structure and style. There are helpful discussions of physical plant requirements, what to expect when using actors, and even whether one has to use actors. Most important, Hughes looks at the pros and cons of many of the issues teachers and museum workers will face: Should they use a script or improvise? Should they use real characters or fictional ones? Should they involve the audience in an interactive way or conduct a straightforward, dramatic presentation? Hughes writes, "No one is immune to learning in a museum." Armed with this book, students and practitioners of both drama and museum studies will create a museum experience that visitors are unlikely to forget.

The Heritage Theatre is a book about cultural heritage and globalisation. Cultural heritage is the stage on which the global community, smaller communities and individuals play out their similarities and differences, their identities and singularities. Cultural heritage forms an implicit cultural code governing the relationship between parts and the whole, individuals and communities, communities and outsiders, as well as the relationship between communities and the world as a whole. Cultural heritage, by way of its producers, its products and its audience, presents an image of the world and its inner coherence. The subjects in this book range from places as distant from each other as Dar-es-Salaam, Jakarta, Amsterdam, Le Creusot, Trinidad, Brazzaville, Bremerhaven, New York and Prague, and deal with themes such as wayang, Kylie Minogue, airports and heritage, modernist architecture in Africa and the impact of DNA research on the concept of roots. The volume is based on papers presented at a conference organised by the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication of Erasmus University Rotterdam. The authors have backgrounds in cultural studies, art history, anthropology, museum studies, sociology, tourist studies and history.
