Theatre model box

By spotogspindel | October 25, 2010

I´ve decided I want to do more theatre-design or set-design. I thought I´d start by making a model or model-box of a B-stage. (Norwegian standard). So I took lots of measurements of the stage at my local culture-house, which happens to have a B-stage and got the materials.

I would have loved to make the box myself, but with deadlines dropping like flies in winter, I asked my handy Dad for a helping hand. He made the actual box for me (whoever said retirement was for relaxing?!)

So now I´ve been measuring in the sight-lines, drilling holes for all the stands for lights and curtains and set. The good news, for me, is that I´ll be using it at least a couple of times in the near future. The next month at teacher´s college, while teaching theatre-design. And in March when I have the set-design for “Fiddler on the Roof”! It´ll be in a different theatre, but the same standard stage. (I´ll tell you more about that later. Very excited about it!) (Hm. I need to iron that velvet in the back there)

The white back-wall is in place. This is used for cinemas, but can also be used for light-design or back-drop pictures used as part of a set-design. The measurements for the box is a standard 1:25. Which is very practical. And to see what it will look like, I made a mini-man.
