About Costumes and Props


With a season of plays ranging across cultures and eras, we are constantly needing to source costumes appropriate for each production. We have our own extensive wardrobe department, but also hire costumes from agencies and other theatres. Whether you are handy with a needle and thread or just have an eye for putting an outfit together, BLT’s wardrobe team needs you!

If you are good at making things then we would love you on our props team. With imagination, you can create something from scratch or adapt a find from a charity shop. We always need people who are happy to help tidy and sort props room so we can know what we have available and where it is held. We lend props to other local theatres too.
