THEA 138 Stage Costuming

Our lab includes drafting table, one industrial and two home sewing machines, two cutting tables, and storage for more than 3,000 pieces and accessories. Covering the major periods through contemporary, international, fantasy, animal and dance costumes, we have a stock that provides a good first pull for virtually any production. Our resident designer and technical director can lead you through the various processes of production preparation. Once annually a qualified student designs a show and assistant costumer positions are available for students, or as part of our federal work-study program.
