Client Testimonials

“Delightful people with whom to plan a show—their work is creative! Quite simply, they get the job done with panache.”
—Dr. Robert Larsen, Dept. of Music, Simpson College

“Curtains Up IS a true PROFESSIONAL biz! It’s Positive. It’s Reasonable in terms of cost. It’s OUTRAGEOUSLY fun-- just visit the retail store. It’s delicious Fabric, of course! It’s Easy to communicate with! It’s Supreme Service! It’s IHSSA’s best partner for support of Festival! It’s Only a couple miles away from you! Its Never-ending supply of creative ideas burst at the seams! It’s a true work of Artistry! It’s like having Julie Taymor as your designer! Curtains Up has been my costume designers for the past eight years, and we’ve got at least 80 more years together!”
—Stacy Hansen, Valley High School, West Des Moines

“Curtains Up has served me well in both school and community theatre productions. Service is the key to a good costumer; Janie Westendorf is attentive to my wants and flexible in meeting my needs, providing service with a smile and a capital “S”. From fantasy characters (dancing cockroaches) to costume heavy shows like Les Miz and The Crucible, Curtains Up has always been able to fill my requests with expediency and creativity. The fact that this costumer will do a whole show or a single costume is important for the budget of small theatres such as the ones with which I work. And they listen . . .above all they listen.”
—Denis Hildreth, Des Moines Hoover High School & former Artistic Director, Drama Workshop, Des Moines
