Return to the Table of Contents


Scope and Contents

The Performing Arts Collection contains artistic performance materials such as performance programs, playbills, fliers, posters, marketing materials, press clippings, reviews, costume designs, photographs, administrative records, and other ephemera documenting the history of the performing-arts scene of Austin and Travis County from the 1880s through current day. The bulk of the collection consists of programs for theater productions produced by local theater (acting) companies. The Austin Civic Theatre and its successor, the Zachary Scott Theatre, Austin Circle of Theaters, Austin Parks and Recreation-sponsored theater groups, Capitol City Playhouse, Center Stage, Curtain Club, Live Oak Theatre, Mary Moody Northen Theatre, and the University of Texas Department of Drama (now the Department of Theatre and Dance) are particularly well represented. Also documented are local dance, choral, classical music, opera, and musical-theater companies, as well as traveling performance groups that perform at local venues such as the University of Texas Performing Arts Center and the Long Center for the Performing Arts.

Some local performing-arts institutions have their own separate collections at the Austin History Center and are not included in the Performing Arts Collection. See the Related Materials section for additional information.

Arrangement

Materials are arranged alphabetically by name of the production company and/or theater, with programs for the same production company/theater listed chronologically. An effort is made to file materials with the production company if local (as opposed to the venue); if the production company is not local or unidentified, the programs (and/or other materials) are filed under the theater/venue name. For example, if Different Stages, Inc., produced a play on the Zachary Scott Theatre Center stage, the program will be filed under Different Stages, Inc.
