Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre costumer honored for her 40 years of service

Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

Janet Campbell has been at the helm of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's costume department for so long it seemed only natural to inquire when a behind-the-scenes book would be coming out.

“I think there should be (one), at some point!” she mused.

On Jan. 14, more than 125 guests came to Perle in Market Square for a masquerade fete to laud her 40 years as costumier. It also officially crowned her as the longest-running employee of the PBT.

In addition to friends and family, including her husband, David, grown children Katie Campbell and Kerri Angeletti, and her mom, Ann Groom, the lively crowd also saw PBT board chair Jim and Melanie Crockard, artistic director Terrence Orr (with Marianna Tcherkassky), executive director Harris Ferris (with Janet), founding artistic director Nicholas Petrov, and Dani and Al Grego making the rounds.

As Campbell laughed off any assumptions that a retirement was imminent, it was clear it might be a few more decades before she takes her final curtain call.
