The Dramatic play area was one of the most used spaces in my home daycare. There are many wonderful ways to create Dramatic Play Area outside as well.
A playhouse can be furnished with an outdoor friendly kitchen, dolls, and play food. An open ended playhouse can become a Store, Movie Theater, Restaurant, or Post Office (Just provide a prop box).
Even if you don't have a playhouse, a Mud Pie kitchen can provide hours of entertainment. Some items to add to this space include: watering cans, Pie tins, and kitchen utensils.

You can inspire Children to perform by creating a back yard theater. Provide a box of Props and Costumes, or a box of instruments for an impromptu backyard concert.
See the building information for this fabulous back yard stage from Momtrusted.
Bring out those prop boxes, encourage dress up outside as well.
For some more inspiration check out the fabulous outdoor space at Highland Plaza Preschool.
