It's theatre time at Whitman!

We were honored to be hired by the costume designer of the contemporary take on the classic William Shakespeare play "Hamlet" We were able to spend an enjoyable evening with the Actresses to practice and come up with some looks for the play, while the Actor's have made individual appointments to come up with their character looks. Using the vision boards created by the director and costume designer: "Haluska Designs" it is always fun to be involved with things that get us out of our comfort zone. From makeup influence to hair product and style design, plays are a great way to use skills that help bring each persons' creativity to the forefront.
For more information or to purchase tickets: H A M L E T BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE • MARCH 5-9, ALEXANDER STAGE RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 24 Shakespeare takes us into a shadowy world where a complex young prince is torn between the demands of duty, love, and revenge. Which will win the battle for primacy in his troubled heart, and how can Hamlet find peace when the questions he asks himself make action impossible?
