One of the Midwest's oldest professional summer companies, Canterbury celebrates its 52nd anniversary in 2021.

The Assistant Costumer works with the Costumer, to produce designs for 4 season shows, using existing stock and building special pieces as needed. Build requirements are minimal-perhaps 2-4 pieces per show.

Responsibilities also include maintaining and laundering costumes as necessary, and maintaining the organization of the costume shop.

Budgets are minimal-usually covering fabric and notions or specialty makeup and novelty costume pieces.

Usually this position is filled by an experienced upper level undergraduate, or a working professional who can afford to work for the experience and the modest salary offered. This person also fits into the summer camp atmosphere, and schedule, of typical Midwest summer stock. Living arrangements are shared bedrooms in provided housing.

The experience is typical of summer stock-resume building, experience, networking, and rewarding. Owing to our close proximity to Chicago, many company members use Canterbury as a jumping-off point to move and pursue careers there. Also, Canterbury is located a short distance from the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan.

Canterbury is committed to following COVID health and safety protocols, according to guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Indiana State Department of Health.

All staff and performers hired will be required to show proof of COVID vaccination on the report date in order to begin work.

Masks will be worn by staff during work and performances, and will be requited for audience members, who will be seated in a socially-distanced arrangement. Also, temperature checks will be administered to the company daily.
