Erecting the Land of the Dead
This past set build was a blast, not to mention a huge success. This being our first set build, we started from the very basics, however, accomplished a lot! Almost half of the stages components are ready for paint. And some beautiful paintwork already done, by none other than Juliet Shatkin and Liz Butler, has our imagination running wild with what the finished set will look like. James Steiner and Rebecca Rovezzi are the reason for our ramp’s decked structure. Thanks to Mr. Howard and Mr. Blauss, our structures and measurements are now perfectly in proportion. We thank the people from Dance for coming and helping out, thanks to you, the stairs have been painted and our elevator panels can stand. We also give a huge thank you to Merit Glover, as a devoted theatre stage manager, your help was amazing. Although the build did not come without its bumps and bruises, they were nowhere compared to how much fun we had. Now that there is somewhat of a set lingering in front of us, we can more clearly see the vision of the play. We can adapt these surroundings to our characters and make it all fit together. Hope you are excited as we are!
