We are on an extremely tight budget, which is going mostly to royalties & 2 screens, so I was at a loss at how to get angel wings for "Snow." At first, I was okay with using white choir robes that the local college had in their costume stock, but that still didn't "feel" right. Then last week, after rehearsal, I was talking with my stage manager & she mentioned she had a friend who worked at a hotel. Light bulb moment: What do hotels do with their old sheets? Do they donate them? Throw them away? Could we have them?
One of the board members at LLT works for a hotel, so I contacted her & asked that question. By the end of the day, we had 7 sheets, with more to come if we need them!
So if you find yourself in the same situation, start asking at hotels for their old sheets.
