Rebecca Britton

Rebecca Britton has worked professionally as a designer and costumer with theatres across the Eastern United States. These theatres include Glassboro Summer Theatre in Glassboro NJ, the Jekyll Island Musical Theatre Festival, Peach State Summer Theatre (the state Music Theatre of Georgia), the Clarence Brown Theatre, Children’s Musical Theatre and the Florence Ballet. Her costume designs have also been recognized internationally at Le Festival Mondiale du Theatre in Monaco and the Dundalk International Theatre Festival in Dundalk Ireland.

Associate Professor of Costume Design and Technology at the University of South Alabama for over twenty years, her students now work on Broadway, Off-Broadway and for Regional Theatres like Actor’s Theatre Louisville, Arkansas Repertory Theatre, The Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, the Alley Theatre in Houston, among others. As a designer she has a love for Children’s Theatre, Musicals, period Costume pieces and high concept driven pieces. She has an M.F.A. in Design from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and a B.A. in Theatre from Samford University.

“I feel designing for the Theatre is creating a living, breathing Art Form. Every production is a cumulative, co-operative, singular piece of art which brings multiple artists contributions together for a one of a kind experience for its audience. At least that’s my approach to the work and the basis of my teaching.”
