It’s been a while since I posted in this blog because it was difficult to find time to write anything, in the midst of costuming 150 kids in 4 casts for Into The Woods, and 2 casts for The Jungle Book Jr.
I finished Jungle Book on a Friday, and started costumes for our alumni/adult production of Hairspray. I had one month to costume 36 cast members, with most characters having at least one costume change, and some of them having really fast costume changes Onstage! Big thanks go out to Theatre Ancaster, who helped provide us with some of the more tricky costumes.
I’m looking forward to costuming BIG, and really excited (as in jumping up and down, happy dancing etc) for our next production in the Spring; Willie Wonka. This is one of my favourite shows of all time, and I’m a huge Roald Dahl fan, so I’m thinking of going back to the original book for my costume inspiration. If you are interested in seeing how my costume plots evolve, check out my Pinterest page, as I add my ideas there first.
