ANGELS IN AMERICA PART 2 HAS REOPENED FOR COSTUME DESIGNER

We're looking for someone to join our already fantastic team and help source us some costumes! Please email applications to lar58with thoughts of any of the bullet points below, or drop us a message and we can arrange a call/meeting to chat about things if you'd prefer! See below for detailed descriptions of the role, but the main thing we're looking for is passion and creativity!

Tell us:

  • Why you want to be involved in Angels in America - Part 2: Perestroika
  • Any previous or relevant experience you might have
  • Any creative or general ideas you might have for the show where applicable
  • Anything else you'd like us to know as part of your application!

Costume Designer
Most of the costumes in the play need to be pretty naturalistic, so you don't need to be a whizz with a sewing machine, as much of it will be a case of sourcing the right items! There is also plenty of room to get more creative with the more magical elements of the play, such as the appearance of seven angels in Heaven, but we are keen to tailor costumes to the creativity of our designer, so if any of this interests you, please drop us a line!

Costume Designer
Given the specificity of the time period, we need a costume designer who can add their own twist on the classic 1950s fashion, covering a whole range of characters found on the streets of New York, including gangsters, showgirls and missionaries- and on a practical level figure out how to source costume for a relatively large cast whilst staying firmly within budget!

Head Carpenter
Come and help our lovely technical director build our gorgeous set! Drop us a line if you have any experience building sets and want to help! Some experience of set construction would be useful, but we can help with training on anything needed!

Head of Props
Self-explanatory tbh, looking for someone to source/make props for us! To include lots of carnations and dice!
