The Dance Archive Souvenir and House Program Collection

Identifier: D004


The Souvenir and House Programs Collection features souvenir and house programs related to dance productions, dance companies, dance festivals, Broadway musicals, theatre productions, opera companies, ice skating productions, and films.

A souvenir program is a commercial publication designed to enhance a company or show with photographs, short biographies, company histories and repertory lists. The companies, festivals and productions covered by the programs in the collection are international in scope. A house program is one that is distributed at a performance to members of the audience attending the event. The house program usually deals with only the specifics of the actual performance itself: title, composer, designer, cast list, and company roster.
