About Alice


Welcome to the world and work of Alice Broughton, costume professional and owner of AB Custom Costume.  Thank you for visiting!

I have been working in the Chicago area theater community for over 12 years as a Draper, Costume Shop Manager, and Costume Coordinator.   I have had the pleasure of working with many area cultural institutions, including the Goodman Theater, The Lookingglass Theater Company, Steppenwolf Theater Company, The Lyric Opera, Drury Lane Oakbrook, Chicago Shakespeare Theater, and Theatre at the Center.

I graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 2007 with degrees in History and Costume Construction, and have supplemented my education with independent study and classes since.  I have extensive management experience, a strong background in teaching both secondary and higher education, and an extensive portfolio designing and creating costumes for live performance and film.

Current Projects in Production: Fulton Theater’s Hello DollyLookingglass Theatre Company’s Frankenstein.
