Troubadour Productions is the largest commercial costume hiring business in KwaZulu-Natal. Situated close to the Westridge Tennis Stadium, it offers close to 5,000 costumes, cartoon characters and stage props, as well as casting services for film and television productions. Troubadour also offers specialised Voice Production Classes conducted by well-known Durban actress and director, Caroline Smart.

Troubadour is sad to announce the death of Mr Peter Gardner who founded Troubadour Productions.

Peter died on May 8 after a long battle with cancer and his bravery and fortitude provided an example to us all.

While the Troubadour building is up for sale, the costume hiring and mascot-making - as well as the casting side of the business - are still going strong.

At present we are downsizing and de-cluttering so have a number of bargain rails of old costumes that are not up to hiring standard but could still be of use in terms of fabric or braiding as well as many props. There's also a selection of old LP records.
