Alice in Wonderland, Jr. Costumes


About Costumes

Finding and making costumes is a fun and creative part of being involved in theater.  When possible, cast members are included in finding costume pieces.  This gives them an opportunity to add their personality.  This is also how costuming works in most school and community theater productions - everyone helps. 

Alice in Wonderland, Jr is a fun, colorful show. We may ask you to supply some of your own costumes and we may be providing some as well. 

We will have a costume parade for you to show us what you have found, probably the first week of November.  This will give time for the costume committee to add and change pieces before full dress rehearsals begin.  If we tell you that something you have found isn't going to work, don't take it personally.  We look at the big picture so something that looks great on you alone may not work when the whole cast is together.

We love help.  No sewing experience necessary - just creativity and flexibility.
We are looking for someone to head up this committee. Please contact Mrs. Malanois if you are willing to serve!

                Best Places to Go for Costume Supplies

Rarely is it necessary for a cast member to buy something brand new for a show.  Try to find something in your closet, from a family member or friend or look for something used.   Theater costumes shouldn't be expensive. 

Thrift Stores

Goodwill 600 E Lancaster Ave Shillington  
Goodwill 324 E Penn Ave Robesonia
The Goodwill shop in Ephrata (on 272 on the East side of town) has an incredible selection of Halloween right now including a great collection of gowns.  The address is 1166 S State St, Ephrata Township, PA 17522.  I hear Goodwill in Honeybrook is also good.
Salvation Army 301 S 5th Street Reading (Near Walmart on 5th) - very large, but closed Sundays

Goodwill Outlet and Clearance Center (in Exeter)
3001 St Lawrence Avenue, Reading (near Aldi's shopping area/post office)
This outlet center has nothing on hangers.  You dig through bins and pay for all clothing by the pound. 

They also have shoes ($2 a pair)..  Stock rotates - if it was there one day, it will not be there when you come back since things are disposed of a few times a day.  Great deals - a little hit or miss.  For gowns, feel for satin as you are digging.
