The CostumeLoft is part of the Lewiston Civic Theatre, a not-for-profit organization that runs primarily on donated time and treasures. The CostumeLoft provides costumes for our plays and also rents costumes out to the public for a donation.
We are located at 843 6th St, Clarkston, WA, 99403. We are above the StateFarm Insurance building, up the stairs, near the alley.
Meet our Costume Keeper
Gabi Segren has been acting since she was six years old and has been a part of LCT for 18+ years in several productions on stage, backstage, designing, or in the orchestra pit. She got her Bachelors in Theatre Arts from the University of Idaho in 2013. She is married to fellow Civic Actor Paul Segren and mom to one of our newest actors Silas Garcia. When not on stage, she loves helping at the CostumeLoft with costuming shows or organizing our inventory.
The CostumeLoft is thrilled to accept treasures. We love donated clothing and costumes - modern and vintage, casual and dressy, plain and fancy, in all shapes and sizes. We use fabric, thread, notions, trims, braid, buttons, ribbons, and more to make costumes.
Some donations we will keep as is, to use on stage. Some we will take apart and rebuild, to use on stage. Some we will sell to help fund the CostumeLoft and the Civic. So, if you have a sentimental attachment to the item(s) you are considering donating, you should not donate them to us. If you are willing to let the item(s) go to our best use, we will put it to that good use.
Please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com
You can also message us on our Facebook page or call the Box Office at 208-746-3401 if you have questions about borrowing costumes.
Volunteer your time
Like to sew? Get satisfaction from seeing a job accomplished!
Sometimes a particular show needs special costuming, and something that already exists in the shop needs to be repaired, remodeled, rebuilt or resized, or we need to start a new costume from scratch. Sometimes costumes that go out in one piece come back as something less usable. If you'd like to do a basket full of repairs once in awhile, we have a job for you! We are always in need of people who are willing to sew 'on demand' and to a deadline. Let us know if you are willing!
As long as the theatre exists, we will continue to accept donations and to make costumes for this play or that, so our need for volunteers will continue.
We also have less technical jobs available - reorganizing our stock, attaching bar codes and putting the thousands of items that we already have into a computerized inventory program.
Please contact our e-mail or Facebook if you'd like to volunteer and we will let you know when we have work parties scheduled.
Want a costume?
We have thousands of costumes, in virtually every era, and are pretty good at finding one that will work for almost any event. Contact us below by email to set up a time to come look through our inventory.
Our mission is to use technology to make the CostumeLoft a user-friendly resource for costume rentals. Eventually, we plan to make the CostumeLoft a profit center for the Civic Theatre.
