“I work in here as the costume assistant for my work study job, and Beth Dorr is the head costume designer here. I just designed the costumes for The Last of the Boys, the fall show directed by Peter Simmel. That was the first show that I’ve ever designed costumes for and I worked very closely with Beth, obviously. Beth is designing this upcoming show, Cripple of Inishmaan, and I’ll be helping her with anything she needs. I had never done costuming until last year when I took Beth’s costume design class. In high school I used to pull costumes out of the costume room, but I’ve never designed anything this intensely before. I’d done some basic sewing but I never had actually made things that people were going to wear on stage or design for a really large college-level production, so it was a big leap for me! I just fell in love with it when I was costuming The Tempest. It was so much fun. I already knew that I loved theatre and acting, but doing the costuming was just this whole other part that I really had never had the chance to explore before. I just found so much more passion in it than I ever thought.” -Kassidy Giggey
