BFA '21

Theater Design & Technology (BFA)

Julie Padovan is a proud alumnus of the University of the Arts where she graduated with a BFA in Theater Design and Technology and a minor in Art History in 2021. Since graduating, she has interned at Central City Opera (2021) where she learned how to ventilate facial hair and wigs. Julie also worked at Theater Horizon on their 2022 production of TJ Loves Sally 4Ever. She is currently designing at Drexel University in their dance program on their winter and spring concerts. She is also currently wardrobe supervising 1812’s production of This Is The Week That Is. Alongside her professional credits she has over hire stitched for Delaware Theater Company on Otherworld and built multiple pieces of facial hair for various productions at Trinity Repertory Theater. Julie looks forward to continuing her professional career in both the Philadelphia and New York City areas.

Both costuming and wardrobe for me are about supporting performers and the company in seemingly small, mindless ways. How can a performer do their job if they're worried about how their costume fits or if their costume will be ready for their next change?
