Charlotte’s Web Costumes
We ask that each family provide a base outfit for under their actor’s costumes.
We will provide costume pieces that will be layered on top of the base to create the finished character.
We will be asking the actors to wear their base outfits to rehearsals as we get closer to production so that we can work with them on their costumes. Please arrange to have a base outfit by Saturday, April 9th.
Wearing the base to and from the theatre for performances helps reduce the dressing room time and ensures everyone has the foundation for their costumes with them. Many of the actors are playing 2 roles, the less clothing they have at the theatre, the better. If you are unable to find a base piece, please talk to one of the costume parents, we’ll be happy to help.
