Video: Professor's Costume Design for Rep's 'Hamlet'
Englis has designed costumes for The Rep since 1979.

With the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis performing Hamlet for the first time in its history, NBC affiliate KSDK-TV shined the spotlight on the costume design of Webster University professor and chair of the Conservatory of Theatre Arts, Dottie Englis.

In addition to her roles with Webster, since 1979 Englis has designed costumes for the Rep, which resides on Webster University's main campus.

The Rep's performance of Shakespeare's Hamlet runs Oct. 13-Nov. 5. Find tickets here.

In the KSDK "Show Me St. Louis" feature, Englis explains the thinking and process that went into designing the costumes for this performance -- all the way from the analysis and sketching last summer to full production by a talented shop this fall.
