Costuming for Community Theater, with Mira Steinbrecher and friends, Wednesday, June 21 @ 7pm
Mira Steinbrecher has costumed many of your favorite WICA productions. She brings you her keen eye, overflowing base of knowledge, and the how-to's to turn design passion and vision into reality.
See what goes on behind the scenes before fairytale characters magically appear or a Victorian lady walks very properly onto the stage. Learn how to create theatre magic from costume stock, thrift store clothing, "retired" shower curtains and leftover bits.
The three-hour class will introduce you to:
- Costume Design
- Costume construction
- Costume fitting and adaptation
- Millinery and accessories
- Wigs, hair and makeup
- Basic costume shop tools and skills
Actor/Designer/Technician HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE (Strike) (Sunday, June 25, 10:00 am)
OK, sure, we need help taking everything down when the event is over. But for those of you who want a close-up look behind the curtain, and don't mind a little work, this is a fantastic chance see otherwise off-limits portions of the facility and processes that make a night of laughs and tears possible. For the artist, commitment is full-hearted. Everyone, from actor to director, participates as a family, saying farewell to boards one last time, and caring for the stage and backstage so that the next lucky crew will get a fresh home to begin the next chapter. Join us, and you'll quickly realize, amongst the hammers, drills, lifting and cleaning, it's actually a pretty cool way to say goodbye. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
