Help me give my students some fabulous costumes for our musical, "Cinderella"! My collection of costumes has grown throughout the years, but I could use some help.

My Students

Each day when students walk into our building, they are greeted by our Fell Family. The students feel a warm, caring environment from the moment they walk in the building at 7:15 am until they leave at 3:15 pm.

We do a lot of performance-based learning at our school.

Our students love drama, music, and hands-on projects. They get to explore their creative side each and every day. As a music teacher, it is something I thrive on and get excitement from the fact that our students thrive on it as well.

My Project

I'm so excited to be doing "Cinderella" this year with my students. I've asked for costumes for Prince Charming, the Grand Duke, the Fairy Godmother, and an apron for Cinderella.

Costumes enhance the whole aesthetic of the stage when it comes to producing a musical.

These costumes with make the kids look fantastic! Another great thing about these costumes is that they'll be used over and over again as the years go on. We rotate musicals every 4 years. Our school also has monthly shows about what our students are learning in World Cultures. These costumes can be used in many versatile ways. I can't wait to see these costumes shine onstage.
