  • Abstract

    This series comprises University Theatre production reports prepared by various production crew heads. The production reports for productions staged between 1934 and 1955 include such information as names of crew members, set and prop renderings, ground plans, reports of hours worked by student crew members and their grade evaluations. They are arranged sequentially by major production number. Unfortunately, reports are missing for the following productions: #141, #144, #157, #159-162, #164-166, #175-181, #202-205, #207, #210-268, #272, #284. Reports without production numbers appended are interfiled chronologically within the series. These records correspond to the University Theatre Prompt Books (Series 20/7) and should help researchers obtain a more complete picture of a particular production. These records also might be used in conjunction with the pertinent production photographs in the Archives' Photographic Collection.
