This week saw the props spreads for Opera Scenes and Paradise Lost, ahead of both productions moving to stage to begin tech.
This terms Opera Scenes are directed by Victoria Newlyn, with musical direction by Elizabeth Rowe and designed by third year Design Realisation student Maddie Pettitt. The setting has turned the Milton Court Studio into a slightly seedy nightclub, complete with powder area and bottle bar.
Photographs from the props spread can be seen below. This project has a Stage Management team of five, Alix Nicholson as Stage Manager, Amber Reece-Greenhalgh as DSM and Lauren Tobin, Anna Metcalfe and Juliet Hague as ASM’s.
The second props spread of the week was for Paradise Lost. This play was written by Clifford Odets and will be performed in the Silk Street Theatre. It is being directed by Wyn Jones, with designs by Libby Watson. Lighting and sound have both been designed by third year students, lighting by James McKeogh and sound by Monty Evans.
The Stage Management team for this production is a team of five, with Lois Sime as Stage Manager, Georgia Graham as DSM and Mia Nielsen, Abby Palmer and Eleanor Coxall as ASM’s. You can see some photos from this 1930’s New York piece below:
