Abstract

Bergen Community College’s history of theatrical productions began in 1973. Since then, the College has produced many musical and dramatic performances, and has also hosted many productions from other groups and performers. “These productions represent the efforts of students, faculty, staff, and alumni and are presented by the Theater/Performing Arts Discipline, the Theater Club, the Student Government Council and Student Activities Board, and the Office of Community and Cultural Affairs.” This collection holds materials that highlight the creative efforts of the Bergen Community College performing arts community.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged into 3 series. The items in each series are arranged chronologically. The individual items in series I and II (playbills, postcards, etc.) are grouped together for each production. Oversized items such as posters have been separated from the collection.
  1. Student productions: Materials from theatre productions produced/performed by BCC students and faculty. This includes Bergenstages, Ender Hall Lab Theatre productions, etc.
  2. Non-student productions: Materials from theatre productions performed on campus by groups or performers not affiliated with Bergen Community College. The productions each season are represented in pamphlets such as This & That from Here & There, Ciccone Theatre, Curtain Up!
  3. Audiovisual material: Video content of student productions (Bergenstages/Ender Hall Lab Theatre), primarily in DVD format.

Related Materials

Some productions include posters. Since these are oversized items, they have been separated from the collection and housed as a separate collection. Please contact the Archives for further information on these items.
