A family history of breast cancer made the Breaking the Pattern project at Stephens College a little more personal for student Georgia Trimble.

Stephens College Warehouse Theatre to sell old costumes in time for Halloween

By SYDNEY BERRY

Stephens College Warehouse Theatre Company will be selling old costumes and vintage clothes for Halloween. The costumes are from the theatre’s own stock, said senior Kaitie Huffman, a theatre major at Stephens.

“We’ve spent the past month going through the clothes and picking out what we won’t be using in the future,” she said

The prices will range from $1, which will be mainly accessories, up to about$15 for costumes and clothes.

“It’s all very affordable,” Huffman said.

Half of the proceeds will be split between the Stephens Costume Shop and the Warehouse Theatre Company’s carpet campaign, which is raising money to replace the carpets on the riser seating of the theatre. The other half of the proceeds will go to True North, a women’s shelter in Columbia.
