For parents of "Dads and Mums" characters:

The opening scene is a fancy Birthday Party. Be looking for a "dressy" costume, something you already have that your student could wear for the opening scene. If you need help/ideas, we have options in the costume closet.

Mums' costumes: a solid color party dress.

Dads' costumes: a simple pair of dark dress pants and solid color dress shirt. 

NOTICE: All students will need underclothes for the play. 

  • Those dressing in the female costume will need a tight-fitting white tank top and a pair of short biker shorts or Spanx for under their skirts. 
  • Those dressing in the male costume will need a tight-fitting white shirt and compression shorts.  
  • All students dressing in the male costume will be wearing black dress pants. We need more pants; if your student has a pair of black dress pants they can bring in and leave at the school for the duration of the play, please have them bring them this coming week.
