Costume Workshop

The costume shop was expanded and renovated in 2013. Additional floor space expanded the workshop, laundry and crafts areas. It is laid out with cutting tables, sewing areas, notions wall, design table and hanging space for organizing shows. The shop is equipped with machines (standard and industrial). The school has a large inventory of dress forms. The shop can accommodate four cutters and ten or more stitchers. The laundry facilities are new, and are equipped with commercial washers and dryers. The craft room is newly organized, with a clean craft area and dirty craft studio, and is equipped with stainless steel double sink, counter, and dye vat. A down draft paint spray table was added in 2014. The costume shop is comparably equipped to many LORT theatres.
