Biography/History

Hedgerow Theatre was established in 1923, as America’s first resident repertory company by Jasper Deeter (1893-1972), an actor, producer, teacher, and Federal Theater Project director. Along with a group of idealistic actors, designers and playwrights, the company served as a “seminal influence for the beginnings of the national regional theatre movement,”(Witham, preface). Described by the National Theatre Communications Group Convention in Philadelphia as the “Mother of all Philadelphia Theatres,” Hedgerow has put on performances for more than 95 years and has served as a starting point for the careers of generations of artists and several other theater companies.

Hedgerow Theatre Company survived many challenges from war and fluctuating economies to two fires which required a complete rebuilding of the theatre in 1990. Despite these challenges, the Hedgerow Theatre Company has continually grown, adding new programs to aid in the growth of theater education and experience for all ages. In 1958, Rose Schulman and Deeter founded the Hedgerow Theater School of Expression training generations of theatre artists adding to the live-in repertory theatre company. Shortly after, actress Penelope Reed joined the Company and she opened a children’s theater while expanding the educational programming to include children as well.

During the 1970s and 1980s, influential individuals in the running and directing of Hedgerow included June Prager, David Ralphe, Rose Schulman, Dolores Tanner, and Charley Walnut. Penelope Reed, a third-generation Hedgerow Theatre Company member who was awarded the Barrymore Awards for Excellence in Theatre in 2017, became artistic director in 1990, serving in that capacity until 2013. She installed a Fellowship program that continues to produce talented arts leaders that have grown the Philadelphia arts scene. In 2016, Hedgerow theatre changed hands with Penelope Reed stepping down and her son, Jared Reed, taking over the directorship. Hedgerow Theatre Company, and particularly Deeter, formed and maintained relationships with nationally renowned authors and artists including Sherwood Anderson, Countee Cullen, Theodore Dreiser, Wharton Esherick, Susan Glaspell, Louis Lippa, Eugene O’Neill, Lynn Riggs, and George Bernard Shaw. Actors and actresses particularly influential to Hedgerow included Ruth Esherick, Ann Harding, Miriam Phillips, David Ralphe, and Penelope Reed, to name only a few.

The mission of the Hedgerow Theatre Company— as professional theatre ensemble and theatre school—strives to create ensemble works of the highest quality and distinction and to provide a learning environment focused on kindness, positive feedback, creative thought, and critical thinking using theatre as the medium. Additionally, the Theatre continues to be a resident training ground for established and emerging theatre professionals while serving as a cultural resource for all people while deepening human connections.

Scope and Contents

The Hedgerow Theatre Company records contains a wide variety of materials documenting the rich history of America’s oldest repertory theatre. The collection includes business and financial documents, correspondence, programs, advertisements, photographs, member specific records and show materials spanning nearly a century. The collection provides both a practical as well as an intimate look into the institution and its values. In addition to theatre company records, the collection also features materials regarding the arts in Delaware County.

The Hedgerow collection was originally placed on deposit at the University of Pennsylvania from 1962 to 1964. Upon request from Hedgerow’s then treasurer, Ralph Roseman, the collection was returned. Between 1977 and 1980, a large portion of Hedgerow materials were placed on permanent loan to Boston University, while a microfilm collection was created at the University of California, Berkley. Some materials relating to the Boston University donation can be found in Series II, box 6 folders 15 and 16. This collection, The Hedgerow Theatre Company records (Ms. Coll. 1321), represents the remaining materials from the split collection as well as those created after the donation to Boston University.

This collection is arranged in ten series: I. Administrative records; II. Theatre Company; III. Publicity; IV. Theatre school; V. Show materials; IV. Scripts, prompt books, and scores; VII. Photographs; VIII. Audio visual materials; IX. Publications, and X. Visual materials. For detailed descriptions, see notes at the series levels.

This collection will be of value to researchers interested in the Hedgerow Theatre and its members, Jasper Deeter, American community theaters, the Philadelphia area arts, and the theater scene in the 20th and 21st centuries. Additionally, those interested in theater pedagogy, American theater production and repertory trends, or theater advertisements and promotion may also find this collection useful.

V. Show materials.

Scope and Contents note

Series V consists of materials regarding specific productions. Arranged alphabetically, these show-specific files may contain articles, advertising, photographs, production documents, blueprints and prompts. The show packs, as they exist in this series, were donated in their entirety by Hedgerow, and were not altered in anyway by the processor. Many materials overlap with other areas of the collection—often in duplication— while some items may be unique to the specific production. Whenever possible, dates were provided to differentiate production runs over time. While this series is arranged alphabetically, researchers may need to search chronologically in other areas of the collection to locate related materials.

VII. Photographs.

Scope and Contents note

Series VII consists of photographs and negatives regarding the Hedgerow Theatre Company and its community. The Photographs have been sorted using a hierarchy where a show or production has the priority of identification, followed by individuals and groups. If shows were undated but noticeably grouped, an effort to keep them together was made. The shows are arranged alphabetically. Productions such as Christmas Carol and Winnie the Pooh which exist in much iteration have been filed together and sorted by year. Researchers may also wish to consult Series V, which also contains materials regarding specific productions, which may also include some photographic materials.

Individual actors are not specifically identified in show photographs. Researchers interested in individuals should consult the collection to identify productions connected to the actor in addition to the actor themselves. Individual actors’ headshots or photographs featuring them are organized under their name. Some headshot photos include resumes, which are also found in Series II. B., Theatre Company, Auditions. Please be advised that some personal files contain personally identifiable information and may be subject to curator’s discretion. Some professional promotional photographs from cinema productions which feature former actors and friends of Hedgerow also are found within the collection.

Group photographs are organized by size. Whenever possible, when a prominent person within the collection was identified in a small group photograph, they were filed under their name if the show was not identifiable.
