One of the many things to do when preparing for a new production is to plan and build the set. In most scripts there is a drawing suggesting what kind of set is needed for that particular play. The planning phase for RCP'S November production happened last evening. Tim Roth the designer and set builder met with me to discuss the set for this show. Sometimes we have to do away with some of the suggestions in the play script due to the size of the stage we have to work with. Even though Tim always attaches extensions to the stage, we are still cramped for room. In this upcoming show the set has to include a door opening up into the living room of an apartment with steps built to walk down into the apartment. Add to that the idea of a kitchen, bedroom, bar and many artistic things including paintings for the decor. Creating the set doesn't happen over night. It takes many hours and on again off again working on it. It is always an amazement to me how a stage that is for bands is turned into a home, house, apartment, park, or whatever the script calls for. You simply must come to our last show of the season and see what I am talking about. "The Crazy Time" written by Sam Bobrick and directed by me, Debbie Barnhouse, opens on November 5 and runs the 6,11,12,13. It is a comedy and guarantees you will laugh not once, not twice, but several times at everything that happens in this show. Hope to see you in November.
