Charlotte Riddett

FdA Costume Student


At BOVTS Charly has specialized in costume making, including some weird and wonderful fantasy styles.  On Placement Charly had the chance to advance her previously learnt stretch wear skills, making quick change dresses for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.  She thrives on making quirky stretch wear and understanding and working with complicated pattern pieces.

BOVTS Credits include: Costume Supervisor on Wilda and the Winter Wonderland (TIE School’s Tour) and Stockholm (Wardrobe Theatre).  Costume Maker on Loam (Bristol Old Vic), Midsummer Night’s Dream (Malcolm X Centre), As You Like It (Malcolm X Centre) and Macbeth (Bristol Old Vic, Weston Studio).  Costume Standby on Lost Horizons (BOVTS TV), Costume Assistant/Dresser on Macbeth (Bristol Old Vic, Weston Studio), Romeo & Juliet (Redgrave Theatre), Loam (Bristol Old Vic) and Stockholm (Wardrobe Theatre).


One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
