My Project

Fortunately, our Drama program has been building back steadily since the pandemic. This year we have eighty-eight, young performers in our school musical. We need to get creative with staging so all actors can be seen. My student designers are planning platforms in front and to the sides of our stage to stretch out the action, but we need to be able to light them in an easy, light, affordable way without needing a complete facilities overhaul. This system will serve us for this show, as well as countless future projects and helps us temporarily expand the scope of our stage.
