About the Wardrobe Mistress

My name is Amanda Greenway and I am the Wardrobe Mistress of the Maddermarket Theatre in Norwich. The theatre has been going for 90 years and during that time the wardrobe department has accumulated 1000's of costumes and accessories both generously donated and skilfully created. It is part of my job to maintain this collection and preserve its treasures for use on the stage. 

The Maddermarket is a producing theatre and we put on 12 shows a year. Yes, that's 1 a month! so you see, I have to work to very tight deadlines. It's lucky that I have such a fantastic resource to draw upon.

I love my job and I want to share my work as the Wardrobe Mistress with you. Exciting finds, donations, ongoing projects, inspirations and costume creations
