Wardrobe/Dresser (The Snow Queen 2019), BOA/The Old Rep Theatre


We require a skilled and dedicated Wardrobe/Dresser for our production of ‘The Snow Queen’ at The Old Rep Theatre in Birmingham.  Our annual Christmas productions have an excellent reputation and last year we welcomed nearly 15,000 people to our show, predominantly comprised of Primary School & family audiences.

The Wardrobe/Dresser role will be responsible for making & repairing costumes, initially at the instruction of the Costumer/Set Designer, and maintaining and laundering them throughout the run.  You will work with the Director, Designer and Company Stage Manager throughout rehearsals to compile and complete an accurate trackway for all costumes. You will work with the company to ensure they are taking best care of their costumes, and maintaining their high standard throughout the production.
