Children on Stage, Garland, Texas
I wanted to define the mood of the show prior to the start of the performance. I wanted to capture aspects of the famous London and Broadway shows that were included in the fine tours. Since most productions involve the use of a stage revolve, and our budget did not allow for that expense, the challenge for me was to create a focal point without one. I designed a unique and versatile five-sided raked platform that was four feet high and included a trap door and strategic inserts on the angled floor to allow for scenery, in this case a wrought-iron gate, to change the script's locales with each scene.
"Gorgeous set design, creative special effects, beautifully detailed costumes, and live musical accompaniment combine to enhance the startlingly complex performances delivered by kids aged 8 to 18. They will leave you in awe if not in tears, as I was at the end of Friday night's performance."
