It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Brenda Hilton, a long-time and life-time member of Lakeshore Players. Brenda contributed to and supported the work of this company in so many ways, but she will be remembered most for decades of dedicated work with costumes. She was an incredibly talented seamstress who understood costume construction, design, and fashion history. In the era when Lakeshore Players had one of the largest costume departments in the area, Brenda was the go-to person for other companies looking to rent or borrow. Her humour and warmth also made her a great teacher to many of our members who still work in costume design. Brava, Brenda, and thanks!
