During my tenure as the Wardrobe Supervisor, in addition to my regular duties as the costume department head, I redesigned costumes and costume elements for several shows, as well as doing some custom fabrication.

Drumming Up Peace

Four kids in detention learn to manage conflicts with the help of their new principal. A program for grades 3-5. Costume Design by Kara McLeod.


Jay and E and the Zig Zag Sea

Jay is a boy afraid of words. With his dog Libro, he learns to face words and love reading. A program for Kindergarten through grade 2.

Notes: Sailor costumes designed by Kara McLeod, Libro headpiece built by Kara McLeod, Jay costume designed by Ann Closs Farley, Libro costume designed by Shirley Pierson, Puppets by Jim Henson Workshop and Swazzle

I did additional work on the puppets after delivery. I modified costumes and the puppets themselves to bring down the weight and improve maneuverability for puppeteers.
