LISA ANN HILL has been an actress since high school but fell into the costume industry in 1989 when cast in Jesus Christ Superstar at Cypress College. Discovered as a fine stitcher, she was recommended to work in many costume shops in the L.A. and Orange County areas. Her main occupation has been working as a stitcher and/or first-hand for the Center Theatre Group, South Coast Repertory, the L.A. Opera, and local playhouses and colleges.
In 1992, Lisa became the assistant to the Mitch Hanlon Singers, helping with both the children’s and adult choruses. Lisa graduated in 1999 with a Masters of Art in Theatre Arts from California State University, Fullerton. She also designed last year’s Carousel at the Hollywood Bowl. She is enjoying being the co-designer on Show Boat this year, since her two little sons take up most of her time.
