The cast of the upcoming A Bright Room Called Day are learning how to properly style their hair and makeup to look the part of young women in 1930s Germany.
To achieve the authenticity, the Drama Department called on industry professionals Lloyd Bell and Michael Devanney to show cast members and BFA Acting students Hayley Moorhouse and Erin Pettifor, and castmate and BFA Acting alumni Melissa Thingelstad, how to achieve their respective looks.
Overseeing the process was MFA Theatre Design candidate Reza Basirzadeh, who designed the costumes. A Bright Room Called Day is Reza’s final thesis show.
