Actors Theatre of Louisville (ATL) Costume Shop

Ever think that you just don't have anything to wear? Well, that's never a problem for the folks at Actors Theatre of Louisville (ATL).

If the perfect attire can't be found in the theatre's colossal costume collection, the wardrobe whizzes can surely whip up something that suits.

In this segment, "Louisville Life" takes you inside one of the largest costume shops in the region, introduces the folks behind ATL's fashions ... and shows you why when it comes to playing dress up their costume shop has it all sewn-up!

Actors Theatre of Louisville is the State Theatre of Kentucky.

Actors Theatre’s programming includes a broad range of classical and contemporary work, presenting over 500 performances each season. The company performs annually to nearly 200,000 people and is the recipient of the most prestigious awards bestowed on a regional theatre: a special Tony Award for Distinguished Achievement, the James N. Vaughan Memorial Award for Exceptional Achievement and Contribution to the Development of Professional Theatre, and the Margo Jones Award for the Encouragement of New Plays.
