Furniture, Props, and Costumes

Props and Furniture

  • Email Jim Dougherty ( as soon as you have an idea of what you need for your show. Jim can help suggest where to find things and can set up a date for a loan visit. Please talk to Jim early and be respectful of his time. Do not walk into the scene shop expecting him to drop everything to help you.
  • There is a $25 fee to borrow furniture or props from the theatre department.
  • You may not take furniture or other items from ANY lounge or common space.
  • Painting or other transformations of items from the theatre department should be discussed with Jim.


  • Get in touch with Marcia Provoncha ( Talk to Marcia early about the possibility of borrowing costumes from the shop.
  • Costumes need to be dry cleaned before returning. Budget in approximately $15/item for dry cleaning.
  • Items borrowed from the theatre department need to be returned in the same condition they left in.

Jim and Marcia both have blackout dates due to faculty shows. During these blackouts, they will not have time to accommodate anyone else.


Truck Trips

  • If you are borrowing more than hand props, you MUST have a truck trip.
  • Plan loading in with truck trips that the show loading out needs.
  • Endeavor to schedule truck trips for the morning after load-out/load-in. Note that truck trips cannot be scheduled for a weekend.
  • Schedule truck trip at least 2 weeks in advance through Jim.
  • Truck trips cost $25 per facilities man per hour (think budget) and usually a truck trip has two men, although you can specifically request to only have one man.
  • You need to be there for your truck trip.
  • Whatever you leave on Saturday night (for a split Monday morning truck trip) can be left in one corner of the Zoo, but cannot block fire exits.
