ANSBACH, Germany (February 29, 2024) - Tucked away in a small sub-community of United States Army Garrison (USAG) Ansbach is the largest costume collection of the U.S. Army in Europe Theater Program. According to the Army Europe Entertainment webpage, "Theatrix is an IMCOM-Europe (IMCOM-E) Garrison Support Element located on Franken Kaserne near Ansbach, Germany. Operated for IMCOM-E with USAG Ansbach, it provides costume and technical support to Army Entertainment programs and other units across Europe."
This short description does not do justice to the collection of Army-owned costume pieces, wigs, weaponry, armor, prop pieces and backdrops for shows. Theatrix is the largest collection of costumes for the U.S. Army in Europe and encompasses more than 100,000 individual pieces estimated at a value of more than $1 million.
