Christy Hutchinson

Owner / Head of Costume

780 498 6208

Christy has always wanted to be a costumer, but growing up in a small town with no one to sew with at home didn't provide many opportunities for this budding costumer. It was not until High School that Christy found her first costuming job at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin as their on-site costumer for staff and volunteers. Christy furthered her studies by attending the Red Deer College Costume Cutting and Construction; receiving her diploma in 2003. Christy has worked as a stitcher and cutter in local films and theatres and was the Assistant Head of Wardrobe Running for The Citadel Theatre from 2007-2010. Though the local costume industry kept Christy very busy, Theatre Garage began to demand her full attention. Christy has focused her efforts to the shop since 2010. Theatre Garage is pleased to construct the Wardrobe for Freewill Shakespeare festival for it's second year this spring with Christy as the Head of the department. There is nothing in the world Christy would rather be doing then working in wardrobe and is extremely grateful to do what she loves for a living every day. She/her

Mandy Mattson

Apprentice Stitcher, Sales

Mandy graduated from Grant MacEwan’s Theatre Production program in the spring of 2017. Growing up in a small town, where the only theatre productions are performed at the high school, she had no idea what she was in for when she moved to Edmonton to originally study for a BSc. She was introduced into the cosplay scene and she’s been hooked on costumes ever since. Though her program of study didn’t feel quite right, she missed the theatre. After two years of study she couldn’t fight it anymore. Theatre Production is where her love of costumes and everything behind the scenes combined. She hopes to one day further her education in SFX make up and wig making. Mandy can’t wait to turn you into the character of your dreams!
