A new costume shop facility has been on our list of delayed maintenance for a very long time. With the risk of dangerous mold spores higher than ever before and the sheer monetary cost of losing so much inventory, a new costume shop has to be a priority. Every show the Players put on increases our costume inventory. Every children's camp production, every main stage production, every fundraiser, every concert. And when I think of the time and effort that goes into the creation of every costume, and that costume just being...destroyed by our inability to keep it safe...it makes me want to scream.
I am putting this project at the top of my "to do" list. I know that the economic climate we live in today is not one of financial largesse but this theater has meant a lot to a lot of people over the years - me included - and I will just have to keep my fingers crossed that together we will be able to resolve this problem. In the meantime, please be patient with our inability to commit our meager costume resources to the full spectrum of community use.
