Mr. Joseph Citarella, who designs and executes the costumes for the Chautauqua Opera Association, is calling attention to the fact that the Opera Association is building up a wardrobe for future productions and will gladly accept donations of clothes that might be usable for costumes. Old formals are particularly needed. Materials that can be used in sewing are acceptable. Sometimes the appliques, lace or beading on old clothes may be saved and used when the gowns themselves are not entirely suitable. Contact the Opera Office, 2355.
