Drama and theater are forms of expression created for our perceptions through imagery. Feelings that can be felt from physical sensations, heartache, pleasure, excitement, and calm, some complex emotions, in the form of stress, are involved in human life. Theatrical drama art is an expression of thought in its attitude to life. With this thought, artists will be able to answer various problems, which are the themes of the current situation. Theater as a performing art has aesthetic values. The aesthetic values are located before the performance, during the performance, and after the performance. Aesthetic values play a strong role during performances, namely when scripts are staged. Theater is a comprehensive art, which has the function of aesthetics, entertainment, and values of life teachings. Appreciation and criticism of the theater cannot be separated from the review of aesthetics and structure. Recognizing the dramatic structure of the theater requires looking at the elements of beauty or aesthetics. Pleasure, satisfaction, security will lead to the desire to experience beautiful or aesthetic feelings. The aesthetic element is attached to the events of theatrical drama by containing three basic aspects, namely: aesthetic form or appearance, aesthetic weight or content, and aesthetic appearance or presentation.
