Theatre Special Libraries and Museums


Theatres -- England -- London -- Globe, Digital ID th-55734, New York Public LibraryI took a Theatre, Film and Dance class while I was studying abroad in Australia, and I also took an acting class at my undergraduate college in New York State. I loved attending the student theatre productions at the beloved Firehouse Theatre at my undergraduate college, and later at the new Performing Arts Center. Below are some theatre libraries and museums that I found.
