Dear Cast:

I will be doing some costume fittings and other costume details on Saturday. I will be at rehearsal from 12:00 until the end. Please read through the following carefully. Thanks!

Peter Quince, Bottom & the Mechanicals:

I am assigning your costumes. We will find the right size of pants and poet blouse for each of you. You may need to provide your own belt if we cannot find one for you in the company belts. And we will finalize your boots.

Little Fairies:

You will be trying on your dresses. Please wear close fitting shirt and shorts. This way you can just slip the dress on over your clothes.

Titania & Moth/First Fairy:

Depending on how far I get with Jennifer’s dress, you both will be trying it on. Wear a close fitting shirt just in case. We’ll do the final fitting with the appropriate undergarments on a later date – and probably not at the park …


We need to fit your overdress tomorrow. Please be prepared to get into your underdress for this.

Egeus & Philostrate:

I am assigning your costume tomorrow. Please come to me when you are not needed for rehearsal.

Oberon & Boys:

You are trying on your base costume of pants and shirt. We need to determine lengths of pants and sleeves for the boys. Jimmy: we also need to find a pair of black ballet shoes or jazz shoes out of our bin for you. (Boys are barefoot.)

Pucks 3:

You are trying on your shirts and culottes. We need all three of you to do this at the same time to determine lengths of pants and sleeves. We will also be discussing your tights and making a final decision on them. It would be helpful if Malini, Angela, Janet, Barb and I discuss footwear together tomorrow as well.

I DO NOT need to see Hermia, Hippolyta, Theseus, Lysander nor Demetrius. You are all set.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions!

Mrs. Smith/Elizabeth
