Shelly Wright, Costume Designer

Shelly’s story isn’t much different than many Juneauites, came to Juneau in the early 70’s and planned to stay for five years. Fell in love, started a family and never looked back. In 1990 she was asked to design and construct a life size Sebastian for Juneau Douglas High School performance of the “Little Mermaid”. She had so much fun she continued to design and sew for children’s and high school theatre. She learned so much about theatre during those early years. There are few things as rewarding as watching children grow into performers. She has been given the opportunity to design and stitch for many other theatres and organizations in Juneau and Southeast Alaska. It is Shelly’ pleasure to design “The Princess Sophia” for the Orpheus Project.
