Meet Amanda Mueller, Costume Shop Manager at ACT. Amanda works closely with each show’s designer to realize their vision while staying on budget and managing the dressing process from soup to nuts.

In our first ACTFocus behind-the-scenes feature, we caught up with Amanda to find out more about her and to answer the age old question: chocolate, wine, or coffee?
