Costume design not only completes a character’s visual appearance, but also helps to establish tone and style, time and place, and character information. Plus, costumes are fun!

ISF believes art is for everyone. By providing accessible classical productions in innovative and compelling ways, they harness the power of theatre to illuminate, inspire and foster our ability to live—locally and globally—in connection with each other.
