“Over the Fence” a Costume Design for August Wilson’s play Fences

Grace Schmitz, The University of Southern Mississippi


This study follows the University of Southern Mississippi’s Fall 2011 production of August Wilson’s play Fences through the process of producing a costume design and actualization by an undergraduate theatre costume designer. Through the analysis of the text and outside research the student will produce a coherent design with a design team within the guidelines of the University of Southern Mississippi Theatre and Dance’s “Stage Design Process.”
