Scope and content

  1. Photographs: The photographic material is organized as a separate sub-series because of the nature of several deposits of photographic material made to the Archives over the years. Photographs of individual productions were donated, along with more general and undescribed photographic material. For purposes of conservation, any loose photographs placed in the production files were removed and described in this series under their production title. For the most part, the photographs are black and white copy prints, often accompanied with negatives and contact sheets.

The production photographs often consist of both posed publicity shots, as well as candid shots taken during the production. The photographs were used for publicity and advertising purposes and were handled often resulting in some frayed edges and dog-eared corners. Studio Theatre used the same photographers from one production to the next, and names of photographers are sometimes stamped on the back of the photographs.

Photographs have not been removed from the production books described in Series III. In these books, the photos have often been glued or taped into the books, along with printed descriptions. The file listing for Series III indicates which books contain photographs, how many, and whether a color or black and white format.

The divisions created within this sub- series reflect the provenance of separate donations, and include:

A. Eric Beaumont negatives - Eric Beaumont was a professional photographer who had an arrangement with Studio Theatre to photograph their productions and print copies for anyone wanting them.

B. Contact prints - donated to the Archives by Photo Services, who also had an arrangement with Studio Theatre to photograph and make available production prints.

C. Production photographs - Some were deposited as separate production photos, while others were separated from the production files. Included are two bound books of production photographs (the photos are glued in the books) from 1950-51 and 1951-52 Studio Theatre seasons.

  1. Posters: The posters, arranged chronologically by production, are listed and described individually; size and colours are indicated. When possible, more than one copy of a poster is retained. Small posters are sometimes folded and affixed to the production books.

  2. Sound Recordings: There are only four sound recordings, and two of these are CKUA broadcasts that relate directly to Studio Theatre. The tapes are described individually.>

  3. Scrapbooks: There is one scrapbook, containing a mixture of media, relating to the Department of Drama generally, Torches Theatre and Studio Theatre.
