THE311: Advanced Scenic & Costume Design

Help for finding resources on scenic and costume designers

Finding a designer or production

You've been assigned to study a production and/or a costume or scenic designer. Where do you begin to find a subject? Try these websites:

Reference articles on theatre topics

For your assignment you may wish to navigate to the Oxford Companion to Theatre and Performance

Research Tip

Word of advice -- If you want a lot of information on a designer, choose someone who's been around awhile. If the designer is just becoming well-known and hasn't designed for very many theatre productions, there will be little written about her/him.
