The Taieri Dramatic Society's costume hire is set to reopen under new management after being closed for almost a year.
New volunteer wardrobe manager Margaret Jackson, a committee member of the society, said previous costume mistress Di Shirley had retired from running the service about a year ago, and the hire clothes had been unused since.
Mrs Jackson was wardrobe mistress and patron of the South Otago Theatrical Society in Balclutha for many years, before moving to Mosgiel about four years ago.
She said a huge clean-up and revamp of the costume hire had been undertaken by the committee and ''all sorts of treasures'' had been unearthed. The clothes were now ready to hire to the public for all occasions, from themed birthdays to school productions.
The society was going to try a new approach, opening the wardrobe hire once a week, on Thursdays from 6pm to 8pm, she said.
''We'll see how it goes for a while, and then review it.''
• The wardrobe hire is in the Fire Station Theatre on Cargill St, in Mosgiel. Opening night is tomorrow.
