The costume shop at Rhynsburger Theatre is bursting with sweeping crimson evening gowns and black feather boas. Sawdust erupts from every footstep taken on the stage, where the bang of hammers and the buzz of band saws fill the air as a huge battleship is constructed. A welcome breeze drifts through the open theater doors, through which actors will arrive to rehearse in only a few hours. The summer theater season has begun.
