Summary

Genevieve is a person who excels at the art of “Making Theatre Happen.” A storyteller by nature, her aesthetic as a designer is focused on finding the best possible way to tell the story behind the costumes while enhancing and illuminating the work as a whole. To further this goal, Genevieve has developed a wide variety of skills and interests from draping and sewing to detailed historical research and a more than passing interest in comic book sociology. She is especially adept at costume crafts and has found that a familiarity with power tools and a willingness to get creative with materials can open up a world of opportunity for design. She can and will make anything out of pool noodles. When not designing or creating clothing for imaginary characters, Genevieve is the Producing Artistic Director and social media guru behind Play On…Productions, a company dedicated to promoting new, local work in Kansas City and, soon, New York.
