Costume Creation

Better cut, better made, better craftsmanship...

We design and build over 90% of our rental inventory, to insure that every costume is right for the show, will withstand the rigors of rental use, and can be altered to fit your actors.

First time renters of our costumes are so pleasantly surprised and impressed with the professional quality and accurate fit they call them a "cut above the rest!".

costume props

Making Broadway shows possible!

Many Broadway shows require props that are difficult and expensive to make yet they are so specific, they are not useful in any other show.

We create these indispensable props for rental use. Our unique designs make them safe and effective for use in schools, colleges & community theatres, to make the "theatre magic" happen.

Request our Showplot for details of the props available for your next production.

And by the way...

The answer to our very most frequently asked question is - NO!!!

The question is: Do you have a minimum order or do we have to rent a whole show?

We believe you should be able to order one hat, two props, an entire show, or anything in between - it's one of your basic theatrical freedoms.
