Theatre arts collection

Main content


The Theatre Arts collection at Penn supports a thriving community of scholars as well as active practitioners. Through physical and online resources, the collection supports a wide range of work in set design, lighting, costume design, historical production research, and more. A particular collection strength lies in Shakespearean and early modern theatre, housed largely in the Furness Shakespeare Library.
