Costume Designer - (posted 11/4/14 by Kids from Wisconsin, Ltd)

COSTUME DESIGNER Job Description – KIDS from Wisconsin

The Kids from Wisconsin is a non-profit, self-supporting organization Founded in 1969, the KIDS musical revue is presented at up to 70 shows every summer across Wisconsin and the Midwest. The KIDS are featured daily at the Wisconsin State Fair, and have earned a national reputation as a unique and highly professional performing group. Made up of 33 performers age 15-20 (singers, dancers, and instrumentalists), the KIDS affords young people an unforgettable musical experience as entertainers and ambassadors for Wisconsin.

Beginning with a 17 day Show Camp in early June, the KIDS tour throughout the summer, and end their season on or near the second last weekend of August.


The Costume Designer of the Kids from Wisconsin is a contract position, serving at the direction of the producer. Review, assessment, and contract renewal will come from the Producer.

The principal duty of the Costume Designer is to design and fit costumes for the 33 members of the KIDS troupe for the two-hour show prepared in June, and showcased throughout the summer.

The position begins with initial artistic planning on or about the time of auditions (early February). The costume designer can begin to design once the troupe is selected in early March, with fittings scheduled for the end of May and rehearsal camp running through the majority of June. A few duties follow later in the summer (wardrobe adjustments, inventory at summer’s end, and storage).


Performance sites vary and include high school auditoriums and gymnasiums, professional theaters, county fair grandstands, community amphitheaters, and small football stadiums. Of special note is an 11-day run at the Wisconsin State Fair where the KIDS perform twice daily at the Bank Mutual Amphitheater, a 1600-seat outdoor venue. Versatility and adaptability is required of the entire cast and crew while on tour, and is of extreme importance to the success of the show. The highest degree of professionalism is expected of everyone connected with the KIDS organization at all times. Over 100,000 people attend a KIDS show each summer.

The musical content of the 2-hour show consists of a staged, choreographed production of a wide variety of popular music - this can include country, disco, funk, rock, jazz, swing, Broadway revue, and music of popular artists in medleys, with band numbers in between each singer/dancer number. Costume changes, hand props and the music itself keep the fast-paced show moving. A basic white stage wash and a follow spot and operator are all that is required of the show. Special lighting effects and complicated lighting cues are used in only a small number of venues where experienced lighting staff is available. The KIDS have a clean-cut, all-American image, and costuming should be congruent with that image. Costume changes take place in a wide variety of dressing facilities, but are generally feasible since costumes are typically changed during the band features.


Major responsibilities of the Costume Designer include:

• Design and build costumes for 20 singer/dancers for a variety show/music revue (normally 7 different outfits), in consultation with choreographer(s) and producer. This could involve ordering, shopping for, and/or building costumes.
• Designing, ordering/shopping/building and fitting costumes for 13 band members (2 outfits, changed at intermission), in consultation with producer.
• Find and supervise a seamstress for alterations. This expense is considered as part of the costume budget.
• Arrange fittings (normally in May over one or two days, typically Saturday and/or Sunday)
• Attend all or most of the 17 day show camp in June, as determined with producer
• Help organize and attend dress rehearsal(s) during rehearsal camp
• Be available for costume adjustments or changes during the first few shows of tour
• Operate within budget, as provided by producer
o Budget should hold into account; dry cleaning through the season, any luggage repair or replacements
o Seamstress help should be part of the determined budget
• Supervise inventory and storage of costumes including
o Cleaning of costumes
o luggage and props
o (volunteer help is available)

Special provisions:

• Housing and meals are provided during show camp at Wisconsin State Fair
• If necessary, KIDS organization credit card may be used, although many items can be ordered from Kohl’s at great discounts with a personal Kohl’s charge. The organization will reimburse all costuming and prop items.

Burlesque Performers - (posted 10/1/14 by Stardust Burlesque)

If you have always wanted to perform burlesque and haven't had an opportunity, here it is. I travel all over the Midwest performing and competing. Now after several years of performing outside of the city of Madison I would love to have a troupe of my own to perform with in town.

I'm looking for individuals of all backgrounds, ethnicity and sexuality. I would love to have performers who want to tell a story with burlesque and express a deep emotion with the art. I have always wanted to explore the limitations of this art form and having a troupe in our amazing town of Madison that would be in pursuit of this would be so wonderful for our city. All of the profits of our shows will be split among the troupe members with the exception of 20% that will go back into the troupe itself to help promote the next show.

So please contact me if you want to do something different and have fun in the process. Rehearsals would be at least weekly to start with and performers could be on stage as early as November. (I already have a venue booked for the 7th and am planning on bringing performers from other cities, but would love to use locals for this show if possible.

Contact me at or Call/Text me at 608-206-0622
Thank you and I hope you contact me soon,
