The Costume Survey

Description provided by the program

Students have the opportunity to design, assistant design and create costumes for our six production season, featuring a large musical and our annual Festival of Ten Minute Plays. Students with an interest in multiple aspects of design are encouraged to consider the Design and Technology concentration, which requires students to complete courses in costume, scenery and lighting. the General BA provides a flexible curriculum that allows for a student to focus on a specific area of design or production.
