The Norwich Theatre Royal will offer budding thespians and amateur dramatic groups the chance to hire the actual costumes and props used in their own pantomimes thanks to a brand new website established by the theatre.
Although Norwich Theatre Royal has always offered it props and costumes for hire, there wasn’t a great deal of awareness of the service. However with the launch of the brand new website listing the huge range of items available to rent, including good quality images and sizing guides, the theatre hopes its hire service will come to the attention of more potential customers.
Currently available to hire via the new website are props and costumes from the pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, with the 8 foot inflatable beanstalk itself being made available for rent, plus items from the panto, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs which previously played at the Theatre.
In addition, the theatre staff say the costumes and props from the pantomime Sleeping Beauty are due to be added to the website’s listings very soon.
All of the costumes available for hire were created in-house by the team at the Norwich Theatre Royal and were made to measure for the actors wearing the items. Accessories such as hats and shoes and other extras are also available to hire along with the panto costumes to complete the required looks.
