Introduction:        
 
     The Theatre Inventory Database is designed to help you keep an up-to-date inventory of costumes, props, sewing patterns and scripts.  It will help you manage the collection so that the costumes and props can be used and tracked while in Productions or Checked-Out / Rented.   Earlier versions of the database were named "Costume Inventory Database" and "Props Inventory Database" but as more users were tracking both costumes, props, patterns, and scripts it made sense to rename the database to cover more of the items used in a theatre.  The Lighting and Sound Equipment databases are still available as stand-alone products.
 
     The database is delivered by downloading the software from the Costume Inventory Resources website (www.costumeinventory.com).  You may download it for a free 30-day trial.  All the modules that are included in the Elite version plus Patterns are installed.  If you do not want one or more modules you can un-install them.  If you choose to purchase the software you may choose which version (see below) to buy and only the modules you want will be included.  If, at a later time you wish to purchase additional modules, you can install the modules you want.
