I’m starting to get orders for skirts and scarves – it’s that happy time of the year when holiday shows and musicals are being planned. Let’s get the lights, costumes and rehearsals going! If you’re putting on a show here’s a list of resources that I hope you’ll find helpful.
In doing research for this blog I came upon an online newsletter for anyone working in community, local and school theater. Pioneer Drama Service has a newsletter with lots of links and resources. “We invite you to visit them (the links) so that you can get to know numerous theaters, read intriguing articles about drama and, perhaps, connect with other individuals in your field.” Here’s a link to their latest newsletter Christmas Plays and Christmas Musicals For the Holiday Season For Churches, Schools and Theatres . You can also check out their other newsletters on different theater topics.
And if you feel like reaching out there’s lots of active forums for anyone involved in the theater Community Theater Green Room and Control Booth are two that I found. Post a question, browse the topics, there’s always new things to learn. I see recent posts so it looks like they are well tended.

We carry 50’s style clothing, dresses, fabric and felt circle skirts in solid colors, solid color scarves and white shirts. Plus – if you’re doing a show, let me know.
