What Our Customers Say


Dear Tracey,

Thank you for all the hard work you put into the costumes for our school production this year. We appreciate the thought you put into the colours and designs and out students looked absolutely amazing on stage. You have made the process of costuming a large number of students very easy and thank you for all the meetings and emails we had along the way. We hope that we will be able to work with you again in the future and will be recommending you to others.

Costumes Without Drama is a fabulous resource for both individuals and dance/drama teachers wanting a one-stop shop to get all their costuming needs. Having used this invaluable business for the past 12 years in over 80 productions, I have found easy access to a huge range of quality costumes at a very reasonable price. Owner and costume creator, Tracey Nuthall, takes great pride and pleasure in making sure her customers are very happy and satisfied. She ensures that customers have lots of choice and variety, will alter or create costumes to suit particular needs,  is generous in her loan time, goes to great lengths to ensure last minute orders reach their destination in time and is extremely thorough in her easy-to-read, comprehensive paperwork. Her creative flair and enthusiastic, helpful nature puts stressful minds at ease when preparing for a huge concert or event. I would recommend CostumesWithoutDrama to anyone seeking costume advice, hire or purchase – service with a smile guaranteed.

Where would we be without Tracey and Costumes Without Drama?  As a school of performing arts, Tracey’s business is a life saver.  I have been using Costumes Without Drama for well over 10 years and cannot fault them.  Costumes are great!  Service is great!  Price is great!  Tracey is the loveliest person and nothing is too much trouble.  She always tries to accommodate. 

Must also mention, Tracey has a wonderful method of inventory.  All items are bar coded and all items are then listed on my copy of the inventory.  Makes it very easy for me to keep track of costumes.  Love her system.  I would recommend (and do) anyone to Costumes Without Drama.

I have been using Costumes Without Drama for over 4 years. We do a number of concerts/performances throughout the year and Tracey has a good range of costumes and sizes which has been very useful. Tracey has a good understanding of what goes in to organising a performance – whether it’s a concert for 200 students or a solo dance routine which means she is very accommodating. Tracey is a pleasure to work with; her communication skills are outstanding and her organisational skills are exception.

‘I first discovered Tracey at a Drama Victoria Conference in 2011, and used her for four years running to costume our full-scale productions. Tracey is highly organised and efficient, and has a great eye for what looks good on stage. By leaving the costuming in her capable hands, I was free to concentrate on directing the show. Tracey was able to meet each year’s brief, even surpassing my expectations. Parents, staff and students alike were delighted with the look of her costumes under lights on stage. I have happily recommended Costumes without Drama to many of my Dance and Drama teaching colleagues over the years. As someone with no clue when it comes to sewing and making, thank you, Tracey!
