Elizabeth Whiting

Costume Designer

I feel honoured to be designing the costumes for Twelfth Night, Auckland Theatre Company’s second Shakespeare
with Michael Hurst directing. My delight comes from the ability to participate in the creation of a new perspective
on a wonderful classic. We have decided to set the play in a period which salutes the fifties but which is not
essentially a period piece. We want to make the characters immediately recognisable to a modern audience but
lose nothing in the translation. This year has been a exciting one for me as I have concentrated solely on my
design work and by the end of this year will have designed Doubt, Twelfth Night and Sweet Charity for Auckland
Theatre Company, Don Pasquale and Faust for NBR NZ Opera and This is How it Goes, Plenty and Take Me Out for
the Silo Theatre.
