Most of our productions are modern dress, largely for budgetary reasons. Like some other summer programs (SOLT in Toronto, for example), we often ask artists to provide the basics of their stage wardrobe. We send artists a list of our clothing suggestions a few weeks before the start of the program, so that they have time to sort out what they want to bring.
When special costume pieces are called for, or if a production is in period costume, HSOF provides whatever is required. Or, if an artist doesn’t have something on our list (we’ve encountered young gentlemen without suits, for example), HSOF will work out something.
