WARDROBE & MASK MAKER'S ASSISTANT
THE LION, THE WITCH & THE WARDROBE
THE BIRMINGHAM REPERTORY THEATRE COMPANY
I have been working as an assistant at Birmingham REP's wardrobe for the production of ‘The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe’ transforming Jamie Vartan’s designs into reality. Initially working with Craig Denston assisting his mask making, to help create 11 bad animals, 7 good animals & various other bits of sculptural costume such as Mr Tumnus’ legs, beaver bodies. However as the job progressed, we helped Mervyn Millar & the puppet makers create a disappearing Aslan. Other duties involved: sourcing parts of costume, doing alterations & running errands for the team. After press night, I was trained to cover the dressers on the show, however the majority of my time is spent maintaining the costumes for this production plus other touring productions.
