Costume Studio

Located on the second level, this suite of rooms is 13 feet high, brightly lit with several large windows facing north in the cutting area and boasts an ample fabric storage space. The studio includes a primary construction area (1568 sq ft.), crafts (404 sq ft.), dye and material preparation (475 sq ft), two fittings rooms (152 sq ft each), and two offices (129 sq ft each).

FABRIC PREPARATION & DYE ROOM: This well-ventilated area includes industrial washers/dryers, hot plate area, and two large professional dye vats appropriate for small through large scale dyeing, steaming, and airbrushing. Also included are paint and dye storage and craft supply storage.

CRAFT ROOM: Stocked with an excellent set of hat blocks, wig blocks, wig/ventilating tools, and craft supplies this spacious work area also promotes a healthy work environment with a large spray booth for craft work.

FITTING ROOMS: With a busy season, two shows can be fitting at once with these spacious rooms. Actors and designers are treated to excellent lighting, a full mirrored wall and modesty curtains.

COSTUME STORAGE: Although the department has a large off-site costume storage space, this area stores those necessary items for most immediate use including foundation garments, headwear, additional trims, fabrics, costume accessories, hosieries and wigs.
