124 folders
Arrangement: Arranged alphabetically by title of work in two sub-series, Concert Dance and Musical Theater.
This series is divided into two subseries: Concert Dance and Musical Theater. Choreographic notes form the bulk of the Concert Dance material and include Holm's notations and writings as well as those of her dancers -- in prose, drawings, charts, and musical scoring. Most of this material is undated. The Musical Theater collection includes the numerous scripts, many with Holm's annotations, for productions on which Holm worked. Most of these are from the 1940s-1960s, including Kiss Me Kate, Reuben Reuben, and Christine, but also included is the script for Farewell, one of Holm's earliest efforts. Production materials for some shows document the audition process and technical aspects of stage and costume design. Opening night letters and telegrams include congratulations from theatrical luminaries, providing a taste of the shared excitement generated by these events. Additional materials relating to Holm's choreography, including scores, designs, and Labanotation, will be found in Series IX: Oversize.
