about

Lisa Borton is a Michigan-based theatrical designer who specializes in both costumes and scenic design. She is the resident scenic designer at the University of Michigan-Flint and has been teaching there since 2012. Her MFA is from the University of Iowa (Iowa City, IA) and her BA from Hope College (Holland, MI.) Her childhood was largely comprised of making clothes for her Ken dolls (Barbie had all the cool clothes!) and making up stories about mermaids in her pool, which makes an excellent foundation for theatre. Let’s create something together.  


Right Now:
Lisa is now the Managing Producer in addition to her teaching and designing roles at the University of Michigan-Flint. She's teaching Clothing in Western Culture & Stage Costuming.
 
Designs for the upcoming school year/professional season include: 
Scenic: The Liar
Costumes: The Liar, Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some,) Ordinary Days, Spring Dance Concert
Lakeside Silver , her Michigan handcrafted jewelry business, keeps her plenty busy in her "free" time :)
