Children’s costumes for The Life and Times of Shakespeare

Many schools have their main school drama production in July each year which often involves many pupils from across all the year groups.

Costuming for in excess of 150 pupils can be a challenge, but with our huge stock range, we are able to accommodate most requirements.

Most recently we supplied costumes for a junior school production of The Life and Times of William Shakespeare which involved children from reception up to year 6 in scenes from Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Year 6 produced the Romeo and Juliet scene with some beautiful costumes for not only the main characters and fairies, but Puck, Bottom and Francis Flute.

Year 5 were divided into citizens from Athens with the boys and girls wearing Greek style clothing. The rest of the year produced Macbeth with traditional style witches and wizards complete with broomsticks.

Year 4 performed the tempest with some great sailor style costumes for the captain and bosun, a matching set of 10 sailor boy outfits and some ragged clothes for Prospero and Miranda.

Year 3 had some lovely costumes for Romeo and Juliet in medieval style with the party goers all donned in tudor dresses or tunics with feathered hats. 

All the younger children were poor villagers from Stratford upon Avon and had dull worn clothes, with shawls, mob caps, caps and jerkins.

All of our costumes are of a quality and traditional style that is difficult to source these days and perfect for period pieces like Shakespeare, making them popular with schools for reception right up to year 13.

Other shows we have costumed for schools this year include: The Sound of Music, Dr Faustus, Bugsy Malone, Guys and Dolls, Oh What  Lovely War, Twist and Shout and Our Country’s Good.
