Description This collection includes files for each production from the first in 1966 to the final one in 2009. Materials include clippings and performance programs, and photographs.

Information below taken from the BoarsHead web site:

BoarsHead Theater was a 250-seat Equity/IATSE house in the heart of Lansing, Michigan. Founded in 1966, BoarsHead Theater was Mid-Michigan's only professional resident theater and the state's longest continually running professional theater. Each season the theater produced six Mainstage productions. As an AEA/IATSE company, BoarsHead attracted artists from Chicago, New York, Detroit and around the nation.

The Theatre closed in December 2009 and Lansing Community College decided not to pursue a partnership in 2010 that would have kept it functioning.
