In this exhibit we celebrate theatre arts at Puget Sound by presenting a selection of objects from campus productions, ranging from a set model of 1620 Bank Street to Mrs. Lincoln's dress in 365 Days/365 Plays and revolvers used in Kiss Me Kate.

The materials  offer a glimpse into the process of campus production and performance, reflecting the importance of theatre within the context of a liberal arts education.  On display are examples of works that take place on the stage and behind the scenes. Playbills, posters, set models, production notebooks, costume renderings, and other theatre ephemera are some of the unique items on view.

Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, February 6, 2015, from 4pm to 6pm. A special presentation by the theatre faculty is scheduled at 4:30 in the Collins Memorial Library Reading Room on the main floor. There will be brief talks about the history of theatre at Puget Sound, dramaturgy, set and costume design, and the upcoming campus production of A Streetcar Named Desire. A reading will also be performed.

Note: Some objects on display may not be appropriate for children.
