* Youth Theatre (children performing for children) 
            * Theatre Education (pre-school through university)

It is the largest theatre for youth repository in the world, containing over:

           * 165 periodical titles
           * 1,000 audio-visual media

The types of items collected are defined in the Child Drama Collection Development Policy.

 

Child Drama Collection History

The Child Drama Collection began in 1979 with the gifts of the papers of
Rita Criste, children's theatre professor at Northwestern University in
Evanston, Illinois and the records of the Children's Theatre Association
of America (CTAA), the national theatre for youth association.
In 1985 Katherine Krzys became Curator of the Collection.
