Measurement Forms

All artists are required to submit a costume measurement form. Please click here for the REQUIRED and detailed measurement form instructions to help you fill out your measurement form. We recommend that someone else help you in taking measurements. Ideally it should be someone who works in a costume shop. However, a local or tuxedo rental house will be qualified as well.

Please choose the correct measurement form to fill out and return to [email protected]. Measurement sheets from other companies are not applicable. If you are returning to the company, use the form labeled "Update". If you are new to the company, or have substantial measurement changes from the last time you were with us, use the document labeled "Complete."

PLEASE NOTE: This season we would like for you to bring your own socks, skirts, and jackets for rehearsals. We will not be providing laundry services for rehearsals. Male artists: We ask that you grow out your hair and facial hair for this season.

If you have any questions or problems, email [email protected].
