Heartland Costumes began in 2005 with its first set of BEAUTY & the BEAST costumes. Since then we have expanded to 12 sets of high school/adult packages and 7 sets of middle school packages. We also have the domed Enchanted Roses and Magical Mirrors. We have had a great deal of success with our B & B costumes and so many happy clients! LITTLE MERMAID is the second show that we represent. We believe we have created some very unique and ingenious costumes for this special, special show. We also have the Ursula Shell - much like the one from Broadway . We also have a voice-activated Ursula necklace. Either of these props will be GREAT for a production. We have a fundraiser arm of our business that provides items to be sold as souvenirs: -Light Up Roses (B & B, Alice in Wonderland, Oliver, My Fair Lady) -Light Up Tridents (Little Mermaid) -Light Up Water Wands (Little Mermaid, Joseph) -Light Up Star Wands (Mary Poppins, Wizard of Oz, Cinderella) -Ogre Ears (Shrek) -Lion Ears (Lion King, Jr.) -Red & White Stovepipe Hats (Seussical, the Musical) -Plush Dogs (Annie) -Light Up Tiaras (Any Princess Show) -Elf Ears (Elf, The Musical & The Happy Elf) We do this on a consignment business so that schools and theatre organizations do not have to pay any 'up front' costs. You sell as much as you can - return the rest - and we bill you only for the ones you sold plus shipping! It is a great way to make money for your program.

FUNDRAISING for Theatre Organizations
Having spent the last 30 years involved in theatre, we are well aware that raising extra funds is always a HUGE need. When we began our costuming business for BEAUTY & the BEAST five years ago, we began a fundraising branch with light-up roses. With no 'up front' costs and the ability to return any unsold roses - clients are enjoying a NO RISK fundraising opportunity and making thousands of dollars. We have expanded products to include pink sequin hats for HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL, red & white stovepipe hats for SEUSSICAL and light-up candles for FIDDLER ON THE ROOF. But we want to do more!We would love your input..what other MTI shows would you like to see us represent AND what product (for that show) would you recommend?Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!!!
