Jane Mitchell of Greene looks for space to put costumes at Community Little Theatre in Auburn on Saturday. Volunteers organized over 80 years of handmade and donated costumes, said CLT president John Blanchette. “Since we are dark, these are the projects that we can do,” Blanchette explained about how theatre productions have been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. “The actors and technicians would come back tomorrow,” said Blanchette, but a CLT survey indicates that only one third of people would be comfortable coming to see a show.
