School of Theatre and Dance welcomes new Costume Shop Supervisor Aimee Johnson

The School of Theatre and Dance is excited to announce that Aimee Johnson will join Kent State this summer as the new Costume Shop Supervisor. 

Aimee holds a BFA in Theatrical Design and Technology from The University of Central Florida, and an MFA in Costume Design from The Pennsylvania State University. Both of these, along with work throughout the country, instilled a passion for making things and problem solving in costumes. As the costume shop supervisor at Brenau University, Aimee’s background in Cirque du Soleil and regional theatre elevated the costume production and the work of the costume students. In addition to running the shop, Aimee served as draper on productions, a mentor to the students, and designed productions. Past professional credits also include the resident Costume Design assistant at The Long Wharf Theatre, and staff positions at The Santa Fe Opera and Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL.

"We're thrilled to welcome Aimee to the School of Theatre and Dance," said director Eric van Baars. "We look forward to the impact of Aimee's expertise in the lives of our students."
