Costume Design Workshop


COSTUME DESIGN WORKSHOP
Grades 3 and up

$150 (includes all supplies)

Monday - Friday 4:30-6:00 p.m. February 13 - 17

Work with DCT’s own Lyle Huchton as he leads a hands-on costume design workshop. This workshop will take inspiration from our Shows of the 2016-2017 Season of Plays. Students will be invited to design and create a costume for a character from a DCT show. Design students might make a costume for a creature from the world or Dr. Seuss (Seussical), a Peanuts character (A Charlie Brown Christmas), an otherworldly creature of the night (Dracula), or an amazing Insect (James and the Giant Peach). Or our design
students may choose another character from the fantastic world of DCT to bring to life in this totally creative costume design workshop. Students will present their designs to their parents at the end of the week – and then take their creations home.
Space is limited- sign up today!
