Donating Your

Costumes/Props

StageDoor Theatre welcomes donations of props and wardrobe/costume pieces. Please contact us Donations@StageDoorTheatre.org with any pieces you would like to donate. Below are some guidelines for your donations.

 

In order to keep the costume collection at a manageable size in our storage, we are asking for donations of items that would be most frequently useful and more difficult to come across when needed.  Modern clothing is readily available in actors’ closets so we don’t need to keep these things in stock.  If you are unsure if an item(s) is useful or is not listed or would like to schedule a time to drop off a donation, feel free to email us at Donations@StageDoorTheatre.org.
