Design For Picasso And Moving On To The Producers by Technical Director Stefanie Christensen

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — julianw @ 12:51 pm

Steve Martin’s script for Picasso At the Lapin Agile is full of surprises ranging from the grand, a visitor from the future, to the subtle yet funny jokes in the arguments between Freddie and Germaine, the couple who run the bar.  When it came time for Director Julian Wiles and Michael Christensen to add sound effects and for me to add lighting to the show, we used the various tools at our disposal to add even more surprises and, let me tell you, that was a very fun approach to this show.  Also it was worth it, as it is not often that a lighting change or a song played in a scene elicits as palpable a response from our audiences as “the show down music” or “the miracle of the stars” have from last weekends audiences, earning applause and praise. We definitely didn’t hold anything back.  Picasso was a huge success!  We will be spending the next couple of days tearing down the set with the help of our Resident Actors who starred in the show.  And we will be saying goodbye to Memminger Auditorium.  All of our productions next Season will be held at the College of Charleston Sottile Theatre!  Now we move on to our next challenge, The Producers!  This is one production where we will be pulling out all the stops in lighting, sound effects and set design.  Audiences are in for a treat, and what a way to end this season!!!
