find information about theatre companies

The first place to look for information is in WorldCat Local.  Type the  name of the theatre company in the search box.  You will get a list of books and articles.  Instructions for finding the material on the library shelf or through links are found by clicking on the titles.

ProQuest is a general collection of databases that searches journal articles, books, government documents, Internet material and more for specific information.  Check "peer reviewed" to get scholarly articles.

LexisNexis allows you to find newspaper articles from all over the world.  Type the name of the company in the 'Search the News' box.  Use quotation marks to insure that you will get the most relevant information (for example, "Siti Company").  This is also a good place to find reviews of play performances (for example, "Zoo Story").
