Arlene Price Kohler
Arlene has been involved in local theater for the past 15 years primarily as a costume designer but also as a parent, friend patron, audience member; trying her hand at directing, stage managing, set design and always as a 'backstage' director and critic. Arlene stepped into the theater world by accident when her kids told her to do something creative or go crazy. And so she did both...stepped into the theater world and was crazy about it! Arlene's costume design background, a B.S. in fashion design, working as a designer for children's wear and six years as a design professor at Tracey Warner School of Fashion Design in Philadelphia served her well. Winning critical acclaim for her first show, Cinderella, at the Open Air Theater in Washington's Crossing Park, Arlene has continued to design and make costumes for many of the local theater companies, among them Playful Productions, ActorsNET, Yardley Players, Premiere Productions, Off Broadstreet and Langhorne Players.
