Lion King, JR.‎ > ‎


Here is the long-awaited costume email! Mrs. Bataoel and I did the majority of our costume and set shopping today, and I have a much better idea what will be provided from our budget, and what I will need families to provide. Below you will find a summary of each costume. This will be broken into items that I have purchased, items that we will make together, and items that families will need to provide. I have tried to keep the provided items as simple as possible. Hopefully these are things that you already have at home, or can purchase inexpensively. We will work on many costume items in rehearsal, and other projects may be sent home with students as homework to finish.

As always, please contact me with any questions! Costuming can be stressful, but we will work together to get it done!
