The bulk of these materials were acquired from Rare Books and Special Collections in 2011; the remainder are items acquired by the University Archives whose provenance is unclear or unknown.
Scope and content
Collection consists primarily of event flyers, programmes and calendars published to promote various performing arts productions at UBC. Also included are companion guides for some theatre productions. Materials are arranged in three categories: Theatre Productions, Musical Productions, and Performing Arts – General. Within each category the materials are organized by department, organization, or production series.

Further accruals are expected.
The University’s performing arts programmes, in particular the Department/School of Music and the Department of Theatre and Film, regularly publish programmes and brochures promoting their productions. Over the years the Archives has acquired copies of these publications from various sources – this collection brings together items whose original provenance is unknown.
Additional information can be found in the virtual display "A Brief History of Theatre at UBC".
