Heather DeBey

Costume Department Shopper

First season at OSF: 2004

As the costume department shopper, I get to help purchase everything from Mexican wrestling masks to combat boots to Tex40 cotton-wrapped polyester core thread to zippers to black socks. I love to balance the creative, problem-solving part of my job with my strong inner librarian who likes to alphabetize and organize.

Education: MFA in costume design, University of Oregon. BA in theatre, Eastern Oregon University.

Other regional theatres: Idaho Repertory Theatre, Utah Shakespearean Festival, Denver Center Theatre Company.
