The Auraria Library is currently conducting two free theatre database trials: National Theatre Collection and Stratford Shakespeare Festival Collection. If acquired, these streaming video performances would support the various theatre programs and classes on campus. Both are listed in our Databases page. I am soliciting feedback on these two trials; you can use the Trial Feedback links provided for this purpose. Alternatively, you can send comments directly to me at Orlando.Archibeque@ucdenver.edu.
