Musical Theatre: Home & Reference

Reference Books

Musical Theatre Resources


This library guide is designed for musical theatre students at LaGrange College.  We have many resources, both print and online.  Use the tabs above to link to the category you want.  If you have questions, please contact your liaison librarian. If you need a book, score, libretto, or article that we don’t have, please ask.  If it’s in a library in the U.S. that will lend it to us, we’ll get it for you on interlibrary loan.
