Glorious costumes for Busgy Malone

Junior Tallulah Hoods

This show needs to sparkle and shine! You need a bit of glam and glitz to give your production a real 'WOW' factor. In fact, you need loads of costumes (and some need to be splurgable!) We can help you with this. We've collected many wonderful costumes for you to use in your show - ranging from the shiny fringed dresses, the longer glam dresses with boa necklines or chiffon capes with feather trim and many 1920s style flapper dresses. There are suits for boys and girls and you can cover them with splurge (just follow the cleaning instructions if you do). Some trilbies and headbands are also included in the hire. You can hire more of everything from us if you need to.

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to OffBeat Theatre for providing top class costumes and props. The guns were a huge source of excitement and fun and at the end of the show almost every child in the audience wanted to fire one! The quality of the costumes was excellent. We had a very good variety of sizes and looks, ample for everyone in our large cast. Thanks once again for adding to our amazing experience."

We can send our costumes to the UK (obviously) and usually anywhere in EUROPE. We do not send costumes beyond Europe though - ever. Beyond Europe and it becomes very costly and time-consuming (plus the whole 'exporting' hoop to jump through). Sorry.

We can probably help - we have loads of spare costumes. Just get in touch and we'll see if we can put a hire together for you.
