Retired costumes get another chance to shine with “Dressed to Play,” an exhibit of theater clothing and designs coordinated by Patti Doyle, performing arts professor and costume designer for Stephens College, and Robert Friedman, the curator for Stephens’ Davis Art Gallery.
According to Stephens Life, the bimonthly newspaper of Stephens College, “Dressed to Play” contains pieces from performances as far back as 1967. In addition to costumes from Stephens productions, there are also costume renderings, photos and programs from productions across the nation. Placards with information on costume construction and design accompany many of the displays.
“Dressed to Play” will be showing in the Davis Art Gallery at Stephens College from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day this week through Friday. The exhibit is free. For more information or to set up a group visit, contact Robert Friedman at 876-7175.
