Reeder Children's Theatre Presents

Drawing on the extensive Dickson and Flora Reeder Papers and Reeder School Records, the journey begins with the origins of Reeder School and explores the selection, production, and performance of the school's plays as well as the students' immersion into the art, history, music, dance and culture of a play's era. Original hand-painted Reeder School costumes, headpieces, and props colorfully accent original play scripts, musical scores, programs, production notes, photographs, and costume and set design sketches. The exhibit is a collaborative effort between UT Arlington Special Collections manuscript archivist Brenda McClurkin, Information Literacy librarian Evelyn Barker, and Hip Pocket Theatre producer and costume designer Diane Simons.
