COSTUMES/Backstage/Make-up:  Costume fitting information will be sent out by email. We will ask each performer to provide some costume pieces along with shoes and hosiery.  The costume fee has already been included in the Production Fee, however for this production we will be renting many of our costumes. For this reason, we are requiring a $50 deposit check be given. This is only a deposit. The check will not be cashed unless costumes are not returned or are returned damaged.


Each performer must have their own container for personal belongings during the dress rehearsals (Tech Week) and run of the show. We encourage a 5-gallon bucket with lid, which can be purchased at Home Depot. The lid is actually perfect for a "chair" and it is sold separately. (Both can be found in the paint section). Your child should put their name on the lid and bucket and everything that goes into it. Your child may decorate theirs if they wish. Please do not bring other types of containers as they are usually too large and odd shaped and make unsafe walkways, which is against the theater's fire code.


For sanitary purposes performers must have their own makeup kits.  Each performer  is responsible for their hair, make-up, and supplies during the performances. Please arrive at the theater with complete make-up applied and hair up. We have no makeup personnel.


A STCK Hair and make-up packet will be sent out via email.
