Thespian Students Team Up With FOA

Thespian costume design students are teaming up with the Friends of the Arts for the upcoming production of LEND ME A TENOR, a comedy by Ken Ludwig.

Each of seven students hope to have one of their designed costumes in the production. They are excited and working hard.

Some of the students met with the cast and measured them so they could estimate fabric yardage needs and get a sense of the shape and look of each actor and actress.
Rochelle Dimapilis measures Sophia Kakuse, who will play Maggie, a young romantic who wants an adventure.

Donna Monton tries to strangle Rich Hamilton, no, measures his neck; Rich plays the title role of the tenor Tito Merelli.

Rozette Bunao measures Linn Asper, who plays Saunders, the Cleveland Opera general manager.

They have been slowly looking through all of the costume stock of the FOA and Thespian Society to see what is already on hand that can be used. And they have been to some of the stores on island, looking for fabric for their designs.

Thanks to FOA for the opportunity for our costume design students to see their renderings be actualized. The play goes up February 12th-14th at PIC.
