Haven’t found that perfect Halloween costume yet?
Check out Theatre UCF’s annual costume sale Friday, Oct. 21, to find what you need to create your new look.
The department will offer a variety of costumes and accessories such as hats, shoes and other items that were created or purchased for past productions. Most items are $1 to $10.
“The exact costumes vary every year, depending on recent shows we’ve done,” said Heather Gibson, marketing director for the School of Performing Arts. “This summer our costume shop manager had time to sort through a lot of back stock, so the sale is bigger than usual.”
Costume shop manager Dan Jones said this is the most items up for grabs in the eight years of the sale.
Some of the items this year are from Kiss of the Spider Woman, about the relationship between two prisoners; Spunk and the Harlem Literati, an adaptation of the play Spunk by Zora Neale Hurston about a 1920s love triangle; and The Most Happy Fella, about an immigrant vineyard owner.
The sale will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s Room T-244.
All the proceeds help fund the theatre department’s costume shop and provide a budget for new productions, especially those with students learning to be designers.
The sale is also open to the public. Cash is preferred, but checks will be accepted. No credit cards can be accepted.
