Essential resources

These textbooks have been placed on reserve by Theatre Appreciation faculty because they directly relate to various aspects of the group projects.

Use these sources to define terms and concepts used in the drama and theatre disciplines. Consult encyclopedias at the beginning of a research project to obtain a concise overview of a concept, school of thought, or a particular person's contribution to the dramatic and theatre arts.

Use these volumes to begin research on the development of theatrical performance over time. The history of European theatre traditions is especially well covered. Use the sources in the Background Information section to find more information on the history of theatre traditions.
