A Child’s Dream

This stage design takes me back to a simpler time…age six. I slyly escape from my parents’ watch and hop all over that stage…weaving in and out of the columns…crawling under the drum riser. A six year-old’s mischievous dream….Snap back to reality!

Scott Avey from Grace Community Church in Indiana shows us their first theatrical set design attempt. (Pretty good, ya?) The set was accomplished using corrugated metal, shoji screens, acoustical panels, televisions, and LED lighting.

The corrugated steel panels were compliments of a team member who works at a farm silo manufacturer. They were cut from left over corrugated steel panels and lit from the ground. Then they added some shoji screen panels and some acoustical panels against the back wall and voila!

The LED lights were inexpensive Chauvet Techno Strobe RGB’s controlled by the Enttec USB Pro ($150) dongle plugged into a computer running Freestyler DMX (free).
