Full Production Design

Theatrical productions that do not have a costume designer available may contract with The Marilyn Johnson Sewing Design Studio for design services.

The Studio designer will:

  • Work from a script to develop the costume plot and create the bible
  • Research clothing within the time period and social status of the script
  • Measure the cast
  • Work with the director and cast to enhance the production and characters through their costumes
  • Create, alter, or modify costume pieces for the cast
  • Use costumes in the theater’s closet, the Studio closet, or purchase/build
  • Set up and break down the dressing room
  • Strike

Fees vary depending on the number of actors in cast, time period, and other factors.
