For this first week, before the official start of MYOwn Image, we were given the challenge of rummaging through a costume closet filled with old Rocky Horror costumes and XXL polka dot dresses from the 80s and creating costumes with nothing but a set of safety pins for 18 fabulous young actors of Playhouse on the Green's program, Project Broadway, for which MYOwn Image will be designing and producing costumes.
Each Project Broadway production is created and conceived by the young actors themselves (ranging K-8th grade), under the guidance of rotating teaching artist professionals. For this first week, the actors of Project Runway created a Bridgeport ode to the Emerald City (i.e. "New York") under the title of Broadway to Broadway.
Here were some of the results!
