Delaware Shakespeare seeks a wardrobe supervisor to support its Summer Festival production of The Merry Wives of Windsor at Rockwood Park (Wilmington, DE). Pending availability, the wardrobe supervisor would assist the costume designer at 2-3 sessions of costume fittings during rehearsals (June 11-July 5). Wardrobe supervisor is available to make simple alterations to costumes to prepare for the production.
The main task is keeping the costumes in good shape during the production run of Merry Wives. Wardrobe supervisor loads in costumes and sets up the dressing areas in Rockwood Mansion during tech-load in on July 6 or 7. Then, starting July 7, wardrobe supervisor is on site to run the show – figuring out costume placements and quick change needs during tech week, and being present each performance night to implement the plan. The production opens July 12 and closes July 28.
Daily time commitment during the run approximately 5pm-10pm, except for Sundays which would be 3:30pm-8:30pm.
Wardrobe supervisor also does laundry each night of the run. There’s no laundry facility at Rockwood, so wardrobe supervisor needs to have access to a washer/dryer (honorarium is available for use of home washer/dryer). Fee for the position is $1,200.
