The Bull Durham Musical has just wrapped up its first month at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta. The show is an adaptation of the 1988 film starring Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon.
Before the traveling musical could take on Broadway, the production’s costume designers came right to Sports Studio. After all, we were heavily involved in the original movie’s wardrobe.
While we had all of the catchers’ and umpire gear in our inventory, we needed to recreate the movie’s custom uniforms from scratch.
The costumers came to us with pictures and illustrations of the wardrobe from the film and of the time period. From there, our graphic designer went to work redrawing the team logos. Once we had vector images, we could then digitize the custom embroidery for all of the hats and uniform patches.
Sports Studio proudly supplied all of the complete home and away uniforms for the Durham Bulls, along with head to toe uniforms for the Hagerstown Suns, Salem Buccaneers, and Charleston Rainbows. Spoiler alert: we also customized a period Braves uniform for the musical.
If you can’t take in the show yourself, see photos of our work below.
