“I have worked with the Costume Gallery for years to costume the shows at Dana Hall. The Costume Gallery has a huge inventory which gives me a wide variety of options from which to choose. Claire and her staff are always knowledgeable, flexible and helpful. Claire works hard to make my actors look great and to help me stay in my budget!”

"In freelance costume designing, each project undertaken is different and presents unique challenges. The wide and varied costume stock at Costume Gallery is a tremendous help in dressing the challenging shows and getting them on stage, everything from "South of the Border" Hollywood to Colonial aristocracy to prim and proper 1890's to fantasy glitz-it's all there, and what they don't have they could create for you. Just a tremendous source- and Claire, Martha and the team at Costume Gallery are exceptionally helpful and are great to work with-and costumes are well-maintained, and the rentals are very reasonable. I have come to rely on Costume Gallery a great deal. Thank you, Claire!"

Andover High School performed Les Miserables and needed several costumes. We were very fortunate to be able to work with The Costume Gallery to obtain beautiful ball gowns and a wedding gown. These dresses were antiques and were worn with hoops and made for a most impressive scene. Costume Gallery also built us a French Revolution period military jacket for the lead character. It was put together in one week and was custom tailored to order. When Jean Val Jean performed "Bring Him Home" he was absolutely stunning in this jacket. We found that The Costume Gallery was very accommodating and took a lot of the stress off of our costume committee with their suggestions and eagerness to help. They have a huge selection of costumes and many accessories. Claire and her staff definitely helped make this show a huge success.

The management and staff of Costume Gallery is a total full service, creative resource for all aspects of theatrical costume production. I have used them on many occasions in the past and have been totally satisfied. There is no one else I would go to.

Thanks for providing great costumes for our production of “Man of La Mancha” . Many audience members commented that they were exceptional, in their “shreddy Renaissance” way. Again, I was reminded of the Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton film version of “The Taming of the Shrew”. And Cervantes and Shakespeare were contemporaries. We look forward to working with you at Costume Gallery in the future.
