We believe that pantomime contracts for Wardrobe are grossly underpaid. The weekly wage is not increased from the industry norm – even though you are working a 12 show week compared to the normal 8. There are no bonuses or time and a half for working Sundays or bank holidays. And no extra compensation for working around the Christmas holidays often away from home.
Members of the wardrobe department have been scuttling around behind the scenes and it’s time to bring them into the spotlight. To kick off this site we thought we’d start with the basics. Who are we and what we do. First off: the start of the story, where a costume’s journey begins: –
I remember the designer being massively behind with the set so I stayed one night to help paint it. And on opening night everything costume-wise was as ready as it could be, so I asked if anyone needed any help. The FOH manager asked me if I could hoover and then watched me do it. Keen, foolish, underpaid and exploited.
