Mike

Mike Capri has been associated with the theatre since he was 8 years of age and started dance lessons. He was soon appearing in numerous shows and choreographing his first production while still a teenager. By his early twenties he was a professional dancer with the Second Generation appearing with many famous names in many different countries. These years also saw him appearing on TV, staging individual acts and even in a big Hollywood movie.

As the years progressed, Mike developed his talents in production so was often called upon to not only choreograph and direct but oversee entire productions from staging, lighting and costumes. ln 1992 he was joined by a couple of friends to develop his brainchild costume company working initially out of one of the partne’s garage. Over twenty years and three moves later, the company, now under the sole control of Mike, has developed into the acknowledged company it is today. With a talented team around him, Mike is able to concentrate on the area in which he has become unrivalled, that of designing and developing the stunning showgirl costumes for which Triple C Costume Hire is unique beyond the confines of the capital.

Madeleine

Madeleine graduated with a degree in English & Drama and worked as a primary class teacher then Deputy Headteacher. During her teaching career she was responsible for writing, directing and costuming many school productions.

After a career break to bring up her daughter, she trained as a beauty therapist and make-up artist. Her initial involvement with Triple C Costume Hire was as a customer when she was Wardrobe Mistress for Stourbridge Theatre Company. Naturally, this position meant that her stage make-up and hair styling was also very much in demand.

As part of the Triple C’S Team, Madeleine particularly enjoys restoring and refurbishing our extensive collection of authentic period costumes. This, of course, means that she really likes to get involved with costuming historical dramas.

Moving from satisfied customer to employee has been a very happy transition and Madeleine loves being part of the Triple C’s team.
