This is an overview of how The Globe was built. On the ground was where the poor people were. On the second and third floor is where the higher class people sat. Nowadays, it would be more expensive to sit on the floor because that is where the best seats are. Before, it only cost one penny to sit at the floor even though they were actually better seats!
This is the layout of the Globe Theater. On the right, is showing where the higher class people sat, on the top is the "hut" which probably is where Shakespeare wrote his plays. And on the left is where the actors got dressed up, stored their props and hung out until they were ready to perform!
Performances were held in the afternoon because the best source of light was the sun in the 1500's. Unfortunately, the open roof allowed rain to come in, which unfortunately soaked the audience below. When a performance was going to begin, or it is already being played, a flag was raised over the theater.
