Canadian Theatre Programs

Dominion Drama program, 1969The Fisher has an engaging collection of Canadian Theatre Programs. It includes programs from several Canadian cities, ranging from an assortment of material from Toronto theatre companies, to obscure programs from cities such as North Hatley, Quebec, and Prescott, Ontario.
