It's that time of year again. The Kalamazoo Civic Theatre is hosting their annual Summer Costume Shop Sale, Friday, August 23rd and Saturday, August 24th from 10:00am to 6:00pm in front of the Costume Shop. The Civic needs to make room for the many costumes they need to create for the 2019-2020 season, and that means getting rid of some once-in-a-lifetime articles from previous shows like Shrek the Musical and Disney's The Little Mermaid. Plus, carefully selected period and vintage pieces will be on sale, as well. Need a top hat or hoop skirt for your steampunk Halloween costume? Are you a collector of vintage corsets? Are you a parent looking to add something fun and funky to your child's dress-up box? The Kalamazoo Civic's need for more wardrobe space is your gain.
