WANTED: Wardrobe Mistress/Master for Dick Whittington
27th July 2017
Concorde Productions are looking for a Wardrobe Mistresss / Master to organise the costumes for our forthcoming pantomime “Dick Whittington” – because our usual wardrobe mistress will be directing this year’s panto, so she’ll be too busy to do costumes as well.
The role will include some/all of the following activities:-
- Fitting costumes - we have a large stock of costumes in our store from previous shows. But, of course, the people in the cast and the size of those peoples varies from year to year. So, you’ll need to try the costumes on the cast members to see what does / doesn’t fit.
- Hiring costumes – if we don’t have the right costumes in our stock, then hiring - whether from another amdram group or a professional supplier – is an option.
- Adjusting costumes - whether from our own stock or hired, costumes aren’t always a perfect fit for the person wearing them, so a little taking in or letting out can be required.
- Making costumes – if your dressmaking skills are good and you have the time, making costumes from scratch can be a great way of getting exactly the right outfit and size required – often at a fraction of the cost of hiring.
So, if you have the know-how / skills to do some or all of the above please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP.
Although she’ll be directing the show, our usual wardrobe mistress will, of course, be around to advise you as necessary.
Rehearsals will start in September and Show Week is 04 - 09 December 2017 at the Magna Carta Arts Centre in Staines Upon Thames / Egham.
