For Indepth 2018, I will be learning about costuming in musical theatre. I will learn to sew clothing, design a scene, work with actors, and be part of a team. My mentor will be Ms. Leermoth, the theatre production teacher at Glen, but it’s expected that Jordan, the head of costumes, will be helping me as well.
I’ll get introduced to the topic by dropping in on theatre production classes. I’ve already attended a few to help with management/budgeting aspects, but I will be taking an active role in the costuming department from now on! To begin my indepth I’ve received a copy of the script as well as a lengthy to-do list from Jordan.
I’m really excited to learn about costuming in musical theatre because I already have interest in musical theatre, and clothing design is a really cool skill! After indepth, I plan to pursue this skill in grade 11 and 12, making it particularly useful.
I’m hoping through this project that I gain a full understanding of the ins and outs of costuming, as well as teamwork and leadership skills! My finished project may just be the actors being in costume during this year’s school musical Sister Act, or it may be a particular costume Jordan has put me in charge of. It all just depends on the flow of the department, and if we have enough time for me to complete such a project. It’s important to remember that this isn’t really an individual project, but learning a skill through a team project.
Main Goal: Don’t Weigh Down The Team!
