Feld Entertainment

Private Contract Work

In her workshop in Bradenton, Florida, Donna's skills have been honed and tested for more than 20 years. Her experience has prepared her for the most challenging projects, including those from Feld Entertainment and her contracts with the entertainment company has given her the opportunity to utilize all of her skills and learn some others.

Donna has patterned and constructed costumes, as well as refurbishing existing costumes for the many shows touring nationally and internationally.

(Donna respects the licensing of costumes owned by Ringling Circus, Disney on Ice, and those under the Feld brand, therefore they cannot be shown on this site, but you can view many of them on published on You-Tube)
Disney on Ice is a series of touring ice shows produced by Feld Entertainment under agreement with The Walt Disney Company. Aimed primarily at children, the shows feature figure skaters dressed as Disney cartoon characters in performances that each derive their music and plot from elements collected from various Disney films and properties Disney on Ice runs over 8 production and touring companies at any given time. The shows have played all over the world, including the Americas, the Middle East, and Asia, Australia and Europe. New shows debut and play two legs in North America for two years, and then head on to Japan for a third year, and Australia, The United Kingdom, and other parts of the world for a fourth year. They would usually then come to the U.S. for another year, and then to any other places for a sixth year

For the 2008 Ringling Circus called Zing Zang Zoom, Donna patterned and constructed costumes for the Olate Dog Act and the dancer’s capes for the opening, based upon costume designer Angus Strathie’s sketches.
