Costumes and PropsCostumes may be “period,” similar to those of Shakespeare’s time, or other historical time period, or conceptual, as long as they are cohesive, appropriate and enhance performance. Costumes may be simple and need not be rented or expensive. Creative Interpretations are allowed, i.e. Romeo and Juliet set in the 1950s or Macbeth in Star Wars garb, as long as the concept is consistent, cohesive, and enhances the performance. All student props should fit within a 12 gallon tub (22”x15”x12”).
Students should stay on campus for lunch. Students may bring a sack lunch or preorder a Subway sandwich during the online registration process. Snacks, chips, and drinks are available for purchase from PACE Center Concessions.
