have no choice, some other shows of the same period that rental houses may
have are "My Fair Lady", or some pieces of "Ragtime" might be appropriate.
From 1900 to 1912 (the latter when the Titanic sank) there were significant
changes in women's clothing, but not so much in men's, so menswear from
"Hello Dolly", or "Our Town" might work. For your "First Class" passengers,
clothing must be up to date, for your "Steerage", anything from 1900 on
would be fine (costumes from Oscar Wilde or Chekov plays)
There is a website for a company called "Costume World" (I think) you might
try. Also, Seaside Music Theater in Daytona Beach, has a large stock they
rent out, I believe they have a website. Also Dodger has a site, based out
of Long Island.
