Costume Shop

The Festival’s costume shop is a large room on the first floor of the Festival Center.   It includes seven sewing and four serger stations, industrial iron station, and four cutting tables.  It also includes a large fitting room, shop supervisor office, craft area, and raw fabric storage. Also, in the Festival Center across the hall from the Costume Shop is the Festival’s period costume storage area. 

The work schedule during the build is usually from 9:00 AM until 10:30 PM with an 1 1/2 hour breaks for lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Sunday.  The schedule is full and fast-paced with a season that includes The Comedy of Errors, The Foreigner, The Winter’s Tale, Camelot, and a children’s show.

The costume crew arrives on Saturday, May 18th with the first dress tech scheduled on June 13th.  With four consecutive opening nights following on June 27, 28, 29, and 30.   The children show build will begin once the repertory season has opened.

Stitchers and the costume intern are assigned to at least two, but no more than three, of the shows as wardrobe crew.   Performances are Thursday through Sunday with matinee and evening performances.   The children’s show opens on July 17th and runs for the last two week of the Festival on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 10:00 AM.

Although there is an immense amount of work that is required for the season TSF is dedicated to providing an environment that is both nurturing and humane and one that creates a spirit of trust, collaboration and mutual respect.

The Festival is seeking a hard-working, responsible, mature, and talented ensemble of theatre artists for a season of summer repertory.
