Midsummer in Midwinter

Posted in Lighting Design on May 1st, 2014 by Eric Appleton

Now that “Romeo and Juliet” is up and running, I’m moving onto a show in Milwaukee at Theatre Gigante, “Midsummer in Midwinter.” Their regular lighting design, Rick Graham, was unable to take on this show, so I was asked to come on board. I last worked with Theatre Gigante back in 1998 on their dance version of “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Back then, they were known as Milwaukee Dance Theatre. After classes, I’ve been driving out to watch rehearsals (we load in on Sunday night). Here’s our stage manager, Therese, at the rehearsal table.
