What qualifies as a dramatic work?

The Copyright Act does not explicitly define what qualifies as a dramatic work. However, it is generally understood that dramatic works include all performed actions, speeches, dramas, etc. which convey information to an audience. The most obvious examples of a dramatic work would be plays and musicals (and the Copyright Act notes that the music accompanying a dramatic work falls within the category of a dramatic work).
