Theatre Threads costume runway show benefits Arts in Education program at the Denver Center

Showcases 22 costumes from Denver productions

DENVER - The Theatre Threads runway show highlights the craftsmanship that goes into each costume for productions at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.

The event benefits the Arts in Education program and the Denver Center Theatre Company (DCTC).

This year's show features 22 costumes from productions such as Dracula, Midsummer Night's Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.

"Donors double as models who show off costumes that have been created over the years by company designers," organizers wrote on Facebook.

You can see hints of the costumes that will be featured at the 2013 luncheon gala and try to name the shows the pieces came from by clicking here.

DCTC puts 350-400 different costumes on stage in an average season of plays, organizers say. The majority are created from scratch. The DCTC's repository contains more than 7,000 costumes dating back to 1979.

The show is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 23 in the Seawell Grand Ballroom.
