Costume Designer

Qualified candidate must be able to creatively work under budget restraints while maintaining quality.  This show was produced 2 years ago, so a lot of the job will simply be procuring the stock costumes from storage, which will help lighten the load.  However, we do need someone with sewing skills because some costumes may need to be modified or procured to accommodate the new cast members.  This person must also be willing to maintain the costumes during the run of the show as well as attend production meetings and technical rehearsals.

Photographer
