Making Something Out of Nothing: Big Designs/Tiny Budgets
In a perfect world, a designer’s budget would be as grand as their vision. Luckily, a production’s quality is not directly proportional to its budget size. Learn creative strategies for delivering show-stopping designs on any budget.



Presenter Susanna Douthit has designed costumes, props, and sets on budgets of all sizes. She has designed costumes for Olympic figure skating champion Brian Boitano, Ballet Nacional del Perú, the world premiere of Our Town the Opera, and countless community theatres and drag queens.
