Tames Alan is an actress, historian, and fashion history teacher who has combined her skills to create an educational program for people of all ages. In this program, she first appears in an authentic lower-middle-class Elizabethan costume and talks about the life, times, fabrics, and dyes of the period. After a question and answer period, she changes into an authentic, 62-piece Elizabethan court costume with full makeup, assisted by one or two members of the audience. As she dresses, she describes each piece of clothing and its significance. Once fully dressed in court costume, Tames describes the life and times in Elizabeth’s court, then answers questions from the audience. http://livinghistorylectures.com/costumed-programs/from-the-streets-of-shakespeare-to-the-court-of-elizabeth/
