UCA Spirit Night Inspiration

Share This Post

UCA Summer Camp is just around the corner! Writer’s Block have you stumped? Here are some ideas for costumes and props to help you and your team get inspired for Spirit Night!

Full team costumes:

  • Don’t throw away your shot!  Steal the scene in wardrobe that brings Hamilton to life!
  • Even if it’s not Wednesday, wear pink!  Mean Girls is a favorite among young theatre-goers.
  • Ears and tails are a great way to make a new memory with one of the longest running shows, Cats.
  • Make headlines!  Grab a hat, vest and rolled up newspaper to recreate the Newsies ensemble.
  • Be a singular sensation with gold top hats and bow ties, one of Broadway’s most iconic look from A Chorus Line.
  • Broomsticks and robes create magic from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
  • You have one night only to sparkle and shine as the glittery cast of Dreamgirls.


Split the team for more variety:

  • There must be some Toros (and Clovers)….in the atmosphere!   Yes, don’t forget – – Bring It On brought cheerleading into the spotlight on Broadway.
  • Grease is the word!  Timeless leather jackets and retro cheer gear take you back to Rydell High as the Greasers and the Pink Ladies.
  • Team Elphaba and Team Glenda can be a Wicked look for Spirit Night.
  • Ease on down the road as any of the characters from The Wiz!


Iconic individuals:

  • A white half-mask and cape make for an easy transformation to one of the most recognizable characters, The Phantom of the Opera.
  • Red curls, a red dress, and a stuffed dog are unmistakably Annie.
  • Into the Woods lets you bring to life any of the numerous characters from fairy tales old and new.
  • When in doubt, there’s the Mouse!   Many of your most beloved Disney movies also made their way to the stage: Lion King, Frozen, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins
