Theatre Annual publishes articles on the history and ethnography of performance in the Americas, drawing from such areas as theatre studies, popular culture, music, anthropology, communication, dance, philosophy, folklore, history, and performance studies across disciplinary lines. Theatre Annual is the oldest theatre periodical continuously published in the United States. Founded in 1942 by the Theatre Library Association, Theatre Annual is the official journal of the American Theatre & Drama Society. It is published in the fall of each year by The College of William and Mary in Virginia.

From our editor:
In 2015 Theatre Annual acquired a new subtitle, newly revised mission, and a brand new professional affiliation. The journal is now “A Journal of Theatre and Performance of the Americas” and the official publication of the American Theatre and Drama Society. ATDS is a vibrant organization whose members meet annually at the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) conference and that also sponsors and co-sponsors other meetings and events. ATDS panels are regularly organized for the Modern Language Association conference, the American Literature Association conference, and the Comparative Drama Conference, among others. Members come not only from the United States and Canada but also from as far and wide a list of home bases as Spain, Germany, Brazil, Northern Ireland, and New Zealand.
