Margaret Caterisano serves as Furman's costume designer and costume shop supervisor. She was hired as Furman's costume designer in 1986, though she took a seven-year break from the university in order to raise a family. Since then, she has designed thousands of costumes for the university's theatre productions and teaches a number of theatre courses, ranging from introduction to theatre to costume crafts.

Caterisano credits her design style to Deborah Brunson and John Ross, who mentored her at the University of Alabama. Brunson was a major proponent of a "pattern on pattern" approach to design that Caterisano has brought to her own classroom.
