For the students wishing to pursue a higher skill level in the technical field, and in an effort to prepare the student more fully for Graduate Studies in the area of Costume Design or Construction, I sought to expand the curriculum to include an Advanced Construction Course. This course operates on a four year cycle, each course independent of the preceding one in regard to prerequisites, i.e., a student may enter the cycle at any point in his/her 4 year career. The cycle includes courses in the following areas and was approved by the College of Arts and Sciences in the Spring 1990.

Advanced Construction

  • THE 141 - Year 1. Draping & Flat Pattern
  • THE 142 - Year 2. Period Undergarments

  • TO PRESENT I continue to run and organize the costume rental policies of the Royall Tyler Theatre. This program serves non-profit theatre groups from all over the State of Vermont. The proceeds from renting costumes are used to purchase needed equipment for the costume shop that would otherwise come out of our department budget, or not be possible. This is a program established by my predecessor which I believe is valuable to the department and to the schools and theatre groups which take advantage of the service. It is not to imply a costume rental service, but includes a great deal of technical and design recommendations.
