All costume pieces must be returned clean and free of stains and body odor. Anything returned will be assessed and an additional cleaning fee will be charged if required.


Costumes may not be altered to fit and must be returned in their original condition. For alterations questions talk to the costume manager. Just give us the costumes the way you got it from here. If a costume is returned altered or damaged, fees will be charged. Costumes may NOT be cut, dyed, painted or altered. Tape, iron-on bonding-web, glue or any other type of adhesives may NOT be used on costumes.


If you rent 10 pieces or more, you will have to pay a security deposit rate of 30% of the total rental and is to be charged at the time when you come to the theatre to pick up your costumes.


Our rental fees are determined on a per piece basis. If the rental time exceeds the agreed upon
rental period, a charge of 15% of the total rental will be added for each additional week. If you need your costumes for more time, that’s fine! All you have to do is give us a call in advance and rescheduling of the rental period is required. It is important that you reschedule so we can approve and you don’t get overcharged.


Normal wear and tear on costumes is expected and won’t incur extra charges. Damage beyond normal wear and tear will incur damage charges above the security deposit. Damage charges will be assessed for broken zippers, detached garment pieces, make-up or other permanent stains or any other damage that renders the costume not rentable.

It includes the cost of the supplies needed to restore the garment to its original state as well as labor costs. Major damage to costumes, including irreparable tears, or irreversible marks will be assessed at the replacement value of the costume. Lost costumes will be assessed with a lost costume fee of the replacement value of the costume.


The return date is calculated by your production closing date (or last competition date) plus ten calendar days to allow you cleaning and packaging time. If for any reason you need more time, please inform us within 48hrs prior to your due date so due date late fees will not be charged.


South Bend Civic Theatre and its employees are not responsible for accidents or injuries related directly or indirectly from the use of the rented item.
