Lots of Sets

Welcome back to the production blog for Fair Ladies at a Game of Poem Cards everybody. I seemed to have gone a little bit off topic on Friday but today is a return to the true topic at hand.

To your left you will note the completed set for the show. Notice the screens, the painted backdrop and the majestic bridge that fills the space and create varied and intereting levels on which to play. I know this constuction represented a lot of hard work on the part of our set designer Nathaniel John Sebastian Sinnott.

Unfortunately this is only the scale model of the set. The constructed set will have to be much
bigger for the show to be staged but I thought the model was so cool I just had to show you.

The designer and our technical director for this production, Amy Kleist, were hard at work Saturday and Sunday sawing and measuring the pieces that will assemble to build what I think is one of our most beautiful and ambitious sets to date.

For those of you familiar with the space it will sit at the choir loft end of the theater with the audience seated on the "stage" end of the space where The Beard of Avon was performed. The set will stretch from floor to ceiling and incorporate the white fabric which fills the arch that seperates the choir loft from the sanctuary. The playing space will stretch out across the floor of the theater, which has been recently decked with a new paintable and durable floor by Rorchach Artistic Partner Tim Getman.

Here are some more pictures to give you some scale on the scale model. Please note how Lex Luthor is holding a captured Lois Lane as Superman stands by to rescue her. The part of the giant hand is played by Rahaleh Nassri.
