Costumes for shows and plays

What a massive variety of plays and shows we have costumed this year!

We started the year with a selection of pantos including Old King Cole with the usual old courtiers and a few swash buckling pirates and Aladdin making use of our oriental style costumes.

Twist and Shout is set in the early 60’s and required a variety of 60’s shift dresses and swing back coats, together with a set of authentic looking Beatles suits.

School curriculum wartime productions included ‘Oh What a Lovely war’ which requires WW2 soldiers uniforms and a wide selection of different hats for the various characters. Our Country’s Good’ is set in 1800’s Australia where the British soldiers wear the red tunics and white trousers of the period. Our Journey’s end required our WW1 soldier’s uniforms for the trench scenes in the first world war.

Large musical productions we have costumed this year include Les Miserables which emulated the costumes from the film, Cabaret set in 1930’s Berlin, Bugsy Malone and the ever popular Sound of Music with Austrian style costumes, play clothes and sailor costumes for the Von Trapp children. 

We have also supplied Victorian costumes for Oliver, medieval costumes for ‘The Life and Times of Shakespeare’ and a range of 1930’s elegant wear for a Miss Marple play and ‘Whodunnit’.

Our bespoke costumes are currently on tour with Townsend Productions with their new play ‘We Will Be free’ about the Tolpuddle Martyrs.

Thank you to all our customers for including us in your wonderful productions.
