Because of our unique collaboration with local school theater programs (Falmouth High School, Mashpee High School, Drama Fun program in Sandwich, the Wing School in Sandwich, etc.), we consider the costume house to be an important part of the theater community in the region. These partnerships with schools and other local theaters are what make the Theatre Guild’s costume collection a regional storehouse of theater magic.

Unfortunately the Guild’s costume house, located just steps from the theatre, is in disrepair because of neglect from a previous tenant.

As an organization, we have now committed ourselves to saving our historic costumes.

There will be 3 phases to saving the costume collection. Phase 1: Fix the roof and trim of the building to make it weather tight. Phase 2: Remove and dry clean the hundreds of costumes to remove mold, dirt, etc. Phase 3: Disinfect the entire interior of the house and re-hang the costumes.

The initial phase of the project, replacing the roof and rotting trim, will be undertaken this summer. The age of the costume building and years of neglect have led to water and animal infiltration and the resulting deterioration of the guild’s costumes. If we do not do this repair within the year, we could lose all of our costumes.

We have an official estimate for this first stage of $25,000. To cover this large cost we are applying for grants as well as embarking on a capital campaign through a mailing to our 300 plus members and the community at large.

Our costume collection, along with our theater, are treasured community resources. We ask that you consider this very real need as worthy of your support.
