University Theater is the University of Maryland's student performance group, established in the 1950s as a sucessor to the Footlight Club. The collection documents the group's shows, plays, and musicals through event files, publicity materials, programs, invitations, brochures, posters, newspaper clippings, and scripts. Three scrapbooks from the Footlight Club era (1935-1950) and two scrapbooks for University Theater (1954-1959) are also included. One item of note is a 1920 photograph of the Pagent Players, a theatrical group from the university's summer school session. The bulk of the collection consists of photographs and slides from a variety of perfomances.
Preliminary inventories for this collection are available and can be found in the "Additional Description" section of this finding aid.
