To Kill a Mockingbird opens on Friday! We caught up with Costume Designer Jessica Van Essen in the costume shop recently. She has been working on To Kill a Mockingbird for several weeks and we got a glimpse into her world of designs and costume construction. As you can see, there are lots of characters to clothe. Jessica will make some costumes from scratch, and pull some other ones from Wayne State Theatre’s extensive collection of costumes. Take a look at what she’s been working on.
