Susie Roberts - Board Member
Susie Roberts was the Costume Coordinator for AWSP from 2010 – 2015. As a manager and designer of costumes, Susie loved being an integral part of AWSP, not because she knows how to sew well (she does not!), but because her position as coordinator was not just about sewing. It was about the fun and beauty of the creative process, the learning of an era of long ago, the picking of colors and materials to work with, the coming together to make it happen, the kindness, the laughter, and the smiles of a bunch of very talented and hard working mothers who volunteered to put it all together by following instructions given. Most importantly, it was about making sure the children had complete, beautiful, Elizabethan style costumes to help elevate their performance a notch higher and help them feel their character in the play even more.
On her last year as Costume Coordinator, she also supervised some of the young actors who were included in taking on costuming projects as well as learning about the costuming process. They were great helpers! From jewelry, to floral wreaths, to puppets, and dresses, they did and learned a lot.
This year, Susie looks forward to working with enthusiastic, talented, and kind costume assistants to help the children get outfitted properly for the play at the end of this season.
