The Empress's New Clothes

Empress Costumer Linda Lyon has just donated a large inventory of costumes, costume materials and costuming tools, including sewing machines to the Empress Theatre. Our accounting people have valued the donation at $10,000. I don't have a list of the specific inventory she has donated, but I help carry a lot of it, and there is a ton (literally... maybe two) of it.

Plans are under discussion to make this costume inventory available for rent as a revenue source for the Empress as soon as we can get them situated and organized in the Magna Lumber and Hardware building adjacent to the Empress Theatre.

A lot of work has already been done to get the costume shop set up, but there is still a lot to do. Anyone wanting to volunteer to assist in cleaning up the hardware building or helping put the costume shop together can call the box office at (801) 347-7373.
