Costumes by Shannon Smith-Regnier reflect the working attire of a large corporation in 1979, reflective of the characters’ different personalities and status in the workforce. The costumes include a variety of whimsical creations for the dream sequences: Judy’s film noir fantasy, Doralee’s rodeo fantasy, and Violet’s “animated princess” fantasy.
