Costume Shop

31 Hemenway Street—Basement

The Costume Shop at Boston Conservatory provides professional costume, wig, makeup, and wardrobe support for the Conservatory’s fully staged dance, theater, and opera productions. For each production, the shop’s professional staff—with the help of a dedicated student staff—build, shop, rent, or pull costume items from the school’s Costume Stockroom to help realize the artistic team's vision. During an average academic year, the Costume Shop works on approximately 500 unique costume designs and manages a Costume Stockroom containing more than 25,000 items. During peak season, the Costume Shop provides costuming support to new productions every two weeks.
