April 2011, Jewell Theatre Company
For this show I also took on the role of costume designer. Since the period was modern/current, I felt that the best way to go was to "shop" the show. I looked online and shopped locally in charity shops, department stores and boutiques.
I'd like to recognize Julianne Donovan of Keen Bee Creative for her creative work on hair and makeup!
Here is the beige suit I found on my first shopping outing.
The green blouse and casual brown pant suit fit her character as one who was ready to leave society and move to the wilderness.
Her grey suit shows her professionalism and sensibility. She is Nicole's friend and wants the best for her.
His black suit with subtle pinstripes show his "business as usual" nature, but the pink shirt and vintage tie show is romantic side as he attempts to woo Nicole.
His grey suit and peach colored shirt and tie link him visually to Lucille who he attempts to woo throughout the play.
Her royal purple cocktail dress and outrageous hairdo and eye makeup show how she attempts to gain the effection of Orgon.
The pink cocktail gown mirrors that of Angelique as they compete for Orgon's love. Notice the bird on her up-do hairstyle!
Whitney actually played three smaller roles while also acting as stage manager! As Twonette she took control of the situation in her powerful fashion statement!
