Toil and Trouble and Pink Thunderbird

Forward! “Toil and Trouble” heads into tech next week, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” started rehearsal the other day, and I’m furiously drafting plates for “1959 Pink Thunderbird.”

Today in shop, student set designer Lilliana finalized her paint treatment samples for the floor:

The Fall semester has begun and we are heading into the first production of the year, “Toil and Trouble!” There’s a student set designer, a student lighting designer, students doing props, and a student sound designer.

The shop is back in action, doing an assembly line of cutting platform legs!
