Secret Garden set build

I’ve set aside a few weeks for another theatre set for Gallery 7. This time it is for the musical, The Secret Garden. Here are just a few snapshots of a large and somewhat intricate set. I am enjoying building it, but not sure I will have enough time to get everything built nicely. I do have a volunteer assistant carpenter this time, which is helpful! I have worked with the set designer on two other shows – Peter and Joseph, and find his designs creative and well-planned.

I have been able to re-purpose quite a bit of material as well. For example, the steps pictured below were stored from last year’s production of Joseph and although they needed some modification, it was a great way to re-use them.
