A peek behind the scenes at NWFSC's "Les Miserables"

Published: Wednesday, June 12, 2013 at 03:55 PM.

Designing and assembling each costume for the 42-person cast is as intricate a process as constructing Mahle and theatre technical supervisor Bob Whittaker's bridge set.

“There’s a lot of nuts and bolts to it," Boudette said. "It’s one thing to come up with an idea, but you have to figure out how that’s going to translate and you have to figure out how to put that together.”

NWFSC student Nate Beechum, one of Boudette's assistants, said his favorite part of the costume process is learning how all the pieces work together. 

“You can cut fabric all day,” he said, “but it’s important to get the knowledge of each technique used in every garment.”

With a seven-night run, "Les Misérables" will be the college's longest-running summer musical.
