Greg Wilson is pleased to be rounding out a summer filled with summer camps! In addition to costume construction and design, he is teaching a musical theater workshop and a show choir camp.

Having served as costume shop manager at Bay Street Theater for seventeen years, Greg has shared a cutting table with some of the icons of the design world - Willa Kim, Jane Greenwood, Tony Walton, Ann Hould-Ward and many others. They influenced his world of design and also his construction of many, many costumes over the years. Prior to Bay Street, Greg designed and built costumes at numerous theaters, including Westchester Broadway, Gateway Playhouse, Airport Playhouse, and Asbury Summer Theater. He also served as costume shop manager at the Broadhollow Theaters, coordinating staff and volunteers as they cranked out costumes for about one opening night each weekend at one of three theaters!

Some standouts in Greg's costume career were building all costumes from the ground up for "Into the Woods" and "A Chorus Line." His most rewarding work, however, was designing costumes for the original production of "Simeon's Gift" by Emma Walton and Julie Andrews, right here at Bay Street. When not sitting at a sewing machine, Greg spends time working with many choirs across Long Island. A high note for him was doing the choral work for "The Prince of Egypt" alongside Stephen Schwartz.

Let's Design!
