Our facilities also serve as academic learning labs:

Parkland College’s Costume Shop is outfitted for both academic labs and professional productions.   We maintain a 10,000 piece costume inventory, used to costume in-house productions as well as to rent out to other local theatres. The Costume Shop has sewing stations where students can learn the proper techniques for creating, constructing and repairing costumes. Contact us for information on costume rentals.
