Dear Theatre History Supporter:
We have begun to organize the American Theatre Archive Project group for Ohio (ATAP – Ohio) and would like to encourage your participation. ATAP supports theatre makers in archiving records of their work for the benefit of artists, scholars, patrons, and the public.
The goals of ATAP are:
*To preserve records of current theatrical process and product for future generations.
*To employ theatre legacy to develop theatres’ fiscal health and support new work.
*To promote a better understanding of theatre as a vital element of cultural history.
*To encourage scholarly research in contemporary American theatre.
*To increase funding for establishing and maintaining theatre archives.
Are you collecting theater materials or have you donated them to a repository? We are interested in hearing about you and your institution.
Consider attending our next ATAP – Ohio meeting on December 16th in Cleveland or contacting our area coordinator, Nora Blackman, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please let us know if you are interested in meeting to discuss the American Theater Archives Project and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Nora Blackman, Archivist, Case Western Reserve University – ATAP – Ohio coordinator
