Fonds documents the professional career of Ray Michal, predominantly his role as managing director of the City Stage Theatre Centre.
The fonds contains records documenting the administration and operations of City Stage, including choosing and developing projects, managing the theatre's facilities, obtaining grant funding from public and private bodies, promoting productions, liaison with the press and other production companies, and production of plays. The fonds also includes records which document Michal's career before and after City Stage, some of which are inter-filed with City Stage records.
The fonds includes a wide variety of business records, such as leases, correspondence, and financial reports; production records such as annotated copies of scripts, prop lists, stage layout designs, and cast photographs; and promotional records, such as press releases and press clippings.
Where it is possible to clearly identify City Stage business and production records, these have been arranged into their own series, seperate from Michal's non-City Stage records.
