Guys & Dolls Jr. Costume Information

General Info

 

“Guys and Dolls, Jr.” takes place in the 1940s, so keep that in mind when costume hunting. Thrift stores are great places to look for items like pants, shirts, and blouses without spending too much money.

 

The sooner your child has his or her shoes, the better - that way, they can practice and get used to the feeling of dancing in different shoes.

 

PVTC will provide most of the costume pieces that go on top of costume basics. Please get these other basics to us as soon as possible (we LOVE them on the first day of camp) so that we can start building whole costume pieces. Each camper will also get to make a costume piece or accessory to be worn in the show. 

 

​If you have any problems tracking costume pieces down, please contact us!

 

Please note: costume pieces provided by families may be altered for the show.
