stage and screen mascotsThe staff at Stage & Screen, Inc. appreciates your interest in us! The owners are Steele Michael and Kirk Bowers who purchased the business in 2012. Our two costumers are Mike Duncan and Susie Graham who have been with this business for over fifteen years when it was originally called Charelle’s Costume Shop.

Steele and Kirk both hold B.A. degrees in Theatre Arts from Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington. During their rigorous training in theatre production, Kirk pursued acting, directing and costume technology while Steele specialized in theatre history and research methods. Kirk has since broadened his theatre expertise by costuming several film productions, and he is listed in the International Movie Database. Mike and Susie have extensive costume credits from their years of working with local schools and professional dance & theatre organizations.

Regardless of the size or scope of your event or film & theatre production, we believe our skills and production experience will enhance the outcome of your projects. From parties to movies & commercials, to operas and ballets, we have the experience to outfit you with the perfect costumes and accessories you are looking for. Please feel free to contact any of us to discuss your costume or makeup needs. No matter what part of the DC Metro area you’re in – Frederick, Hagerstown, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Clarksburg, Germantown, or Bethesda – we look forward to helping you take the stage!

Stage & Screen furnishes costumes and accessories for theatre, opera and film productions throughout the year. The following list illustrates the range of shows we provide. Delivery and pickup are available for a nominal charge, and the professional measuring of your cast (within the Frederick-Washington D.C. radius) by one of our qualified costumers is included in the cost of your rental agreement.
