It's Almost Here!

July 6, 2019 * 7:30 pm
Performed on the Mainstage

Costume Drama: A Fashion Show is an eclectic evening of inventive fashion that will blow your mind. Local designers create astounding garments from unconventional materials - the dress pictured above was in last year's show and was created from plastic spoons, zip ties, and bubble wrap! - and compete for cash prizes in this Project Runway-esque show, with proceeds from ticket sales to benefit the theatre.

This year’s categories are Light, Paper, Artistic License, and for the first time, Oceania (items found both in the sea or on the shore). We can't wait to see what these 20 inventive designers create for the runway!

We only have a handful of tickets remaining for this year's show. Don't hesitate to snap up one of those back or side seats - you'll have an excellent view of truly phenomenal fashion!
