Croydon Local Studies Library holds a substantial amount of material relating to Croydon Repertory Theatre at ref. S70 (792) CRO
An unpublished paper, John Garrett and the Croydon Repertory Theatre 1930-1935 by Barry Atwood is based on extensive research of these records and gives a substantial amount of detail of their contents. This covers the period up to Summer 1935 when John Garrett (senior English master at Whitgift School) left to become headteacher at Raynes Park County School.
The Local Studies Library holds a signature book with separate items including a pen and ink and water colour drawings of the theatre. It also holds copies of Rep, the Croydon Repertory Theatre Magazine (8 issues, November 1933-December 1934), playbills, photographs, cuttings, other ephemera and programmes; among the latter can be found the names of many of the then relatively unknown actors mentioned above.
