Theater department plans costume sale

by Andrea Hahn

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The Department of Theater at Southern Illinois University Carbondale offers a sales rack of Halloween costumes unlikely to be duplicated anywhere.

The sale is from 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 11 in the lobby of McLeod Theater in the Communications Building on campus. Yes, that is Homecoming Weekend -- so you’ll be on campus already anyway, right?

The sale offers surplus stock from theater productions. This year, a super feature is 16 matching “old lady” outfits -- perfect for an athletic team or fraternity. Swing by and check it out -- you’ll be assisting area arts with your purchase.
