Built around 90 CE, the South Theater is the largest of three theaters in Jerash. The other two are the North Theater within the walled city and the Festival Theater two km north of the walled city. The south theater has a seating capacity of over 3,000 spectators. It has a standard design with a stage, orchestra area, seating area, and vaulted passageways through which the audience enters. The ornate stage was originally two stories high. Some seats are marked with Greek letters, denoting assigned seating.
