Front-of-house (FOH) is the name given to the area on the audience side of the proscenium arch. Front-of-house is the name often given to the people who should, more correctly, be called the front-of-house staff. (Led by the front-of-house manager). The job of the FOH staff is to look after the audience, sell tickets, and ensuring that the audience is evacuated properly in an emergency.

Other uses for 'front-of-house' are things like FOH lighting bars which are, funnily enough, the lighting bars which are in front of the proscenium arch. Also, the FOH sound desk is the one in the proj box, as opposed to the monitor desk, which is normally by the side of the stage (usually only in big concerts)
