Meet the Costume Designer - Victoria Widener
It's time for the designer run-through and it's time to meet our wonderful costume designer Victoria Widener! Victoria, do you have any previous experience with class 6 theatre?
This is my first time designing for Class 6! It's fun to be able to work on two shows at once--Drive being set in a 1950s-60s time period versus the contemporary nature of Sylvia is an enjoyable experience because I get to take inspiration from two distinct periods.
I hear you are quite the popular professional around here! What's up next for you?
I currently work as the costume technician for Arizona Opera. We're excited to be presenting The Magic Flute with a Steampunk influence, designed by Leslie Bernstein, in late February.
We are all very excited to see your work take us back in time in these exciting and intriguing productions!
Victoria Widener is excited to be designing for Class 6 Theatre! Graduating from University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Fashion Institute of Technology with a degree in Fashion Design, Victoria is now using her experience in design and construction. Previous design assistant credits under Adriana Diaz include Phoenix Theatre's Memphis and Childsplay's Charlottes Web.
