I recently had the fortune to tour one of the largest costume warehouses in North America. Just imagine, aisle after aisle of costumes, props, masks & headpieces!!
The Stratford Festival (in Ontario, Canada) houses their collection in what looks like an aircraft hangar from the outside!
Inside, it seemed just as huge:
And then all the goodies inside!
Costumes, of course!
Props & backdrops!
I loved the backdrops!
Especially, since most of them were finished using papier-mache!!
There even was faux food.
That looked pretty realistic!
Good thing it was time for lunch shortly after that.
But seriously, it was amazing to get this behind-the-scenes view of the Stratford Festival!
If you ever get the chance to take in a performance at the Festival or see some of the behind-the-scenes tours, don't hesitate!!
