A busy week four in the workshops…

It’s the start of week 5 now and as such the design realisation workshops are full of interesting set pieces and props being build and painted ready for this term’s productions.  Both of our shows being presented in our new Milton Court building as part of our Chekhov season are opening this week and as such the last week has been spent adding the finishing touches to the final props for The Seagull and Three Sisters.

The construction team have also had a busy week.  The opera double bill begins its fit-up in our Silk street this week so the workshop has been full of set pieces being completed ready to go on stage later.  Here are the team working on some of the scenic components for the opera…

There’s been no rest for the scenic art department either, they have been continuing their work on the opera as well as two paintcalls for the Three Sisters.  The paint calls were extremely tricky as the floor of the stage had to be painted to match the floor cloth so that the design was extended out to the sides of the acting space.  Here are some photos of the painters working their magic on stage as well as in the paintshop…

Well that’s a lot of photos with very little explanation but hopefully the shots will be good enough for now! I told you we’d been busy! Photos of the fit-up and more from scenic art and props soon…

Stay Tuned!
