Art&Seek Jr. Goes Behind The Scenes With Costume Designer Lyle Huchton

by Therese Powell 28 May 2014 9:40 AM

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a costume designer? Check out the Junior’s conversation with Lyle Huchton from the Dallas Children’s Theater.


Art&Seek Jr decided to go on a field trip to the Dallas Children’s Theater a few weeks ago to talk to costume designer Lyle Huchton. Lyle told us all about his inspiration for the animal costumes in DCT’s spring production of Charlotte’s Web and how he went about making an actor look like a goose without using a single feather.

If you want to see Lyle’s handiwork you’d better get a move on. The final performances for Charlotte’s Web are this weekend.
