Our Favorite Theatrical Productions

With the school year vastly approaching, and back-to-school shopping in full bloom, The Costumer is making way for show season. The busiest time of year is truly in the Spring, but don't let Fall fool you. We still have hundreds of shows to costume, usually within a few weeks time span. With show season prep underway, it got us thinking about our favorite plays and musicals to see. Here is a list of staff picks:

Les Miserable
My Fair Lady
Once Upon A Mattress
South Pacific
To Kill A Mockingbird
A Streetcar Named Desire
Aida (Jenn)
The Robber Bridegroom
The Merry Wives of Windsor
The Good Bye Girl
Phantom of the Opera
Music Man
Angels In America
Mamma Mia
Avenue Q
Peter Pan

The Costumer can provide costumes for any one of the above productions. Remember, just because we may not have a plot for it, doesn't mean we don't have what you need. Don't hesitate to call with any questions! Now it's your turn: What's your favorite play or musical?
