Musical theatre combines songs, dialogue, acting and dance. It dates back to the theatre of ancient Greece during the 5th century BCE. It included stage comedies and tragedies. Roman actors attached metal chips to their footwear so their dance steps would be more audible - these were the first tap shoes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, there were pageant wagons that would move from city to city with actors that would tell part of a story. When they left, the next wagon would come to tell more of the story.
Music has been a part of theatre since ancient times, but the modern Western musical theatre didn't emerge until the 19th century.
