Shakespeare said “All the world’s a stage”. Here in the Humanities Department, that stage is constructed on an extensive collection covering the entertainment industry: books, CDs, DVDs and videos from Hollywood to New York and across the globe. You will also find popular biographies of your favorite entertainers, comics, dancers, and musicians, as well as companion books to television shows, popular films, and music history. We are also proud of our theatre selection, which contains scripts of plays showcased here in Memphis and all over the world, books on the craft of theatre, as well as technical material about stage lighting, set decoration, costuming and make-up. We do not, however, keep the entertainment DVDs here. For classic films and the latest hits on DVD and videocassette, please visit the Popular Library.

The links below will connect you to many of Memphis’s playhouses and theaters. There are also links to major theatre and film resources, as well as abundant resources about Memphis’s great local theatre, film, and radio scene.
