COSTUMES FOR OLIVER AND SHOWMAN

Children should wear ‘Oliver’ costume OVER their ‘Showman’ costume as there is no changing backstage.  ‘Oliver’ costume may be a very large, worn, torn, dirty looking shirt or tee-shirt and easy to take off as they have very little time to change.  UNDERNEATH  they should wear sparkly, sequence costume.  Ideas for girls, leotard, swim costume (maybe sparkle them up a bit), skirt, top, dress, sparkly leggins that they can roll up under the ‘Oliver’ costume.  Boys can wear, trousers, jeans, sparkly tee-shirt or waistcoat.  Colours that clash, as loud and mad as possible.  Children who are playing individual roles can look at the dvd to get an idea of what their characters are wearing.  They do not have to be the same.  Something similar is fine.  The costumes MUST be easy to take off quickly as they have about 5 minutes to change.  Under no circumstances can any child be in a state of undress backstage so the costume for ‘Greatest Showman’ MUST fit underneath the ‘Oliver’ costume.
