Jamie Englehart “I am a member of the Theatrical Wardrobe Union, Local 764, and am currently a dresser on Peter and the Starcatcher on Broadway. Since moving to NYC almost 2 years ago I have worked as a dresser, stitcher, and day-worker (laundry, maintenance, etc) on several Broadway productions. (Evita, The Normal Heart, The Scottsboro Boys, Chinglish)

In between shows, I work as a stitcher at some of the costume shops in the city including Parsons-Meares. I have worked on costumes for shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Book of Mormon, Spider Man, Lion King, Wicked, How to Succeed..., and many others. Before moving to New York I was the Wardrobe Supervisor at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, a regional theatre in Little Rock, AR.
