Colored Model of She Stoops to Conquer
I greatly reduced the size of our 42 foot proscenium to create a jewel of a little theatre. I used wing and drops , with wings riding in tracks. I provided seats for several audience members on stage, and we contacted the community theatre to provide claques in case regular subscribers were timid about sitting onstage. The false proscenium with its painted drapery was attached to an aluminum truss system downstage of the real proscenium. The truss was supported with beefy steel supports under the apron lid. The footlights were operational, and the Lighting Designer and his crew got to use our new Color Scrollers for the first time. Student scenics got great pictures for their portfolios and the Props and Crafts class upholstered the fancy chairs.
