Theater puns frequently rely on substituting theater words like “stage,” “cast,” “scene,” and “play” into common phrases. They poke fun at aspects of theater like acting, backstage crews, audiences, and critics.

The themes of theater puns center around key elements of the performing arts. Many puns focus on acting and plays on words related to performers, scripts, directors, and more. Others highlight the theater space itself with puns about stages, seats, and auditoriums.
