End of 2017-2018 Season

Lots has happened since our last entry, someday we will do a flashback.  Even though the season is over we are still busy in the costume shop.  We are working on a few new things.

Revamping NUTCRACKER which is an old friend that we visit when we have time.  Right now we are making new soldier belts for the 16 soldiers who battle the rats and win.

RUBIES, a segment of George Balanchine’s JEWELS, is part of our March program.  In partnership with The Dance Theatre of Harlem.

Around 150 tabs for the Ladies skirts

We are also returning THE GREAT GATSBY to the PBT stage with new choreographer Jorden Morris, new composer, Carl Davis and set and costume designer Peter Farmer.  Wonderful line up for a great and timeless ballet.

Costume sketches from Peter Farmer

As if there wasn’t enough to do I get lots of demands from the grandchildren for costumes.  I made Kalli a tutu while she looked over my shoulder and could not wait til it was done.  High pressure.
