Iberville Math Science and Arts Academy theatre students in 1-8 grade experienced a field trip like no other recently.

Student had the opportunity to visit Southern Costume Company in New Orleans.

Since its 2011 opening, Southern Costume Company has provided costuming and wardrobe assistance on productions in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana, including Treme, Memphis Beat, 21 Jump Street and many others.

This Hollywood-style costume house located in the New Orleans Central Business District , allows the public an opportunity to be costumed just like the stars by providing top-of-the-line costume rental – many of which have been used in Oscar award-winning films and television movies.

Here the students were able to speak with costumers from New Orleans, try on costumes, and get fitted for up coming productions. The students enjoyed their time seeing how costumes are made and even performed a runway show after receiving their costumes.
