Charlotte Burke will lead you through the process involved in creating theatrical costumes using images of the work in progress from Peter and the Starcatcher, a production recently mounted at the BlueShore at Cap. This delightful play tells the story of how a boy becomes Peter Pan and how Neverland is created. Pirates and mermaids abound. Burke will explain what goes into the decisions that underlie the final results you see on stage and share some tricks of the trade used to create certain effects. Actual costume pieces will be on hand. 

These FREE presentations are co-sponsored by Capilano University in partnership with North Vancouver District Public Library, North Vancouver City Library, West Vancouver Memorial Library, Burnaby Public Library, and Gibsons & District Public Library. 

This event is free, but space is limited. Early arrival is highly recommended.
