Costume Crew including Hair, Make-up, Dressers

Save to Favorites

Des Moines Playhouse

  • 22 people are interested

There are two basic areas in costumes that need volunteer assistance: sewers and dressers.

Sewers are instrumental in building costumes as well as putting the finishing touches on projects. Anyone who can sew, from simple alterations to full-scale construction, is welcome to spend time in our costume shop.

Dressers help make costume changes during performances. They may also help put on wigs or help change costumes during quick scene changes.

We are also looking for those with experience and interest in make-up and hairstyling to help with shows.

NOTE: Due to the pandemic, our 2020-21 Season has not yet been announced. Shows and dates, as well as any changes to volunteer practices, will be posted on our backstage volunteer page, https://www.dmplayhouse.com/volunteer/back-stage/
