Where to look for plays in the Library

Most plays are assigned call numbers according to the playwright (same as novels).  

For general collections of plays, try browsing call number range  PN6110.5 – PN6120 (4th flr) 

You can also try the following:   

  • Know the title: enter title of play in Search@UW
  • Browse plays: Using Search@UW, type "drama” and then you could include "Samuel French" or "Dramatists play services" (both popular play publishers).
    • Limit your search to "Available at My Libraries" or by specific library location (Stevens Point library, Marshfield library, or Wausau library)
  • General Search Terms: search general keywords such as “one act plays” or "drama" or "script". 
    • Musical Theatre Terms: search keywords such as "lyrics" or "vocal scores" or "libretto"
