MEET THE DESIGNERS
Danielle Porterfield is a 2010 graduate of Coal City High School where she participated in musicals and theatre all four years both on stage and in the pit band. After high school she attended Joliet Junior College where she received her associates in science and also studied and participated in their theatre program. She starred in shows such as Little Shop of Horrors, 12 Angry Men, and It's Called the Sugar Plum. Outside of school, Danielle has performed with Small Town Theatrics' productions of 13 and Rent. In the past Danielle worked as one of the makeup artists for Shrek the Musical, and then costume designer for Beauty and the Beast. She recently led the costume design for Small Town Theatrics' production of Mary Poppins. Danielle is very excited to be working with such a talented team of adults and students, and hopes to be costuming many shows in the future. She wants to give a special thanks to her grandmother and mother for being her rock and helping her with anything and everything. She hopes everyone enjoys this production and can recognize all the hard work being exuded on stage, as well as all the hard work that has taken place behind the scenes to bring this story to life.
