This collection contains the records of the Pasadena
Playhouse, a community theater established in Pasadena, California, in 1917.
Materials consist primarily of theater programs, scrapbooks, business
records, correspondence, clippings, scripts, school catalogues, brochures and
ephemera, indexes, photographs, original drawings of set and costume designs, and research
materials originally housed in the organization's. The materials document
the performance history of the various theaters of the Playhouse and also contain
partial administrative records and school records, with particular strength in
coverage for the "Mainstage" theater and an extensive run of programs and
performance photographs. The core records are strengthened by the complementary personal paper collections of directors, performers,
and others associated with the Playhouse.
362 boxes, 98 volumes, 6 oversize folders, and 22 audiovisual items (223 linear feet)
