Our costumes have all been selected to match the period. The orphans really look as if their clothes are third generation hand me downs and muted earthy colours are used to reflect this.This is in contrast to the staff at the Warbuck’s mansion who relay the smart sophistication of the day .
Furs and period suits make the illusion come to life.
