Costume Shop

Our costume shop is located in McClintock 112 across from the Panowski Black Box Theatre and FRT Scene Shop. All costumes for the season are constructed by hand by a staff of students from all majors, overseen by costume shop supervisor Ann Juidici. Dr. Shelley Russell oversees the design process, but often has students assistant design or guides them in their own design work. Our shop strives to train skilled and professional seamstresses and the focus for our 2017-18 season was on using green, re-purposed fabric to construct our costumes!
