Costuming for the Beginner

This is a perfect opportunity to learn about how costuming works in a community theatre setting!  Without professional costume designers on staff, our costumes come together with the hard work of a volunteer or small team of volunteers.  In this hands-on class, this team will work with the director of “A Christmas Story” and Julie Baumann to design and create the looks the director wants for our December production.  The final product will be the costumes that are used in the Civic show!  No drawing required, though encouraged for those who love to draw!  We will work a lot with idea boards and images gathered from outside sources to bring our ideas to life! Ages 12-18
