The show is moving along quite well. We are nearly finished with the set and have been working on setting up the rather complex lighting rig. We have added over a dozen moving lights into the KRT space which means running not only DMX to each fixture but power also.
With 1 week to go we are on schedule ! Tomorrow is the lengthy process of writing lighting cues and with this show I think it will be a high cue count show.
Busy day at KRT! Finished the rounded steps construction, painted the desert/canaan drop, and started on the false proscenium. We also put together the fence pieces, attached the side triangle platforms, and built the ‘ranch’ archway.
Tomorrow we should hang the drop and finish the false proscenium. Seem to be starting out on schedule but the cast enters the space on Friday night so our freedom will be limited from here on out as we are sharing the space.
Saturday night was the opening night for the KRT Kidz production of Honk!Jr. We handled the technical direction as well as the scenic and lighting designs. Honk! is the musical adaptation of the story of the ugly duckling and is full of catchy dialogue and cute songs.
Now that Honk! is up and running we will turn our attention to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – the mainstage summer show at KRT this year! As I sit here writing this on Monday morning, we have less than 4 weeks until opening night. This is always a busy time of year and with only 21 days between shows and a crew of 2 there is a lot of work to be done to change over the shows. Fortunately I have already begun working the lighting fixtures for “Joseph” into the light plot for Honk! so some time should be saved there.
Pics of everything should be forthcoming.
