    No title.

    Interesting and unusual film showing activity backstage in a theatre and view of the audience from the stage. Theatre not identified but probably one of the big West End theatres as has elaborate revolving stage.

    Shot of two men at side of stage, curtain comes down in foreground. Shot of audience looking from back of stage, light fades out and curtains close. Performers on stage (shot from the wings), actors and theatre staff in foreground. Curtains open and lights illuminate audience, conductor in foreground. Shot of two men (in the wings), one on the telephone, the other operating machinery (possibly lights or curtains). Man on rostrum operating spotlight. Performers on stage (again from the wings). Actors and theatre staff in foreground. Shot of revolving stage as actors and actresses take position, stage revolves more to show staff at back of stage. Man operates switches.
