Chat from the Old Cap: Cathy Parrott (01BA)

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Tony Hakes

Join Cathy Parrott (01BA), an associate costume designer for Broadway, film, and live television, as she discusses her work with A-list actors on the stage and big screen.

Initially a pre-dentistry major at the University of Iowa, Parrott will discuss her journey from Iowa City to the Big Apple—and discuss her experience working on a 2021 major motion picture based on a musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

A Manchester, Iowa, native, Parrott has worked on more than 45 productions across the globe and collaborated with Hugh Jackman and Emmy Award-winning costume designer Ellen Mirojnick for 2017 blockbuster The Greatest Showman. Parrott has also assisted on Broadway hits such as On Your Feet: The Story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan and Motown: The Musical, as well as an unreleased production about Princess Diana.

Registration is required and space is limited for this event.
