For 15 years, Costume Shop Manager Heidi Sue McMath has designed the elaborate costumes of A Christmas Carol. With her designs, McMath has brought life to the many inhabitants of Victorian London, as well as the supernatural spirits who visit Scrooge. These designs can change each year pending the arrival of new cast members or a shift in a director’s vision. Below are sketches of McMath’s costumes featured in this year’s production.
