A date has been set for the memorial for Mary Anna Culligan, the Children's Theatre costume designer who died unexpectedly on May 23. She was 52.

Culligan, who had a decades-long career at the nation's largest company for families, was known for her creativity and inventiveness. She often bought items from thrift stores and converted them into costumes for mainstage productions, including "Pippi Longstocking," "Sleeping Beauty" and "Romeo and Juliet."

Culligan also designed costumes for Mu Performing Arts, Mary Worth and other Twin Cities theater companies.

The service will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, July 28, at the Children's Theatre, 2400 3rd Av. S., Mpls. The celebration will be followed by a dessert reception.
