Shey from Faith Baptist in Bartlett, TN brings us this multi-set stage design for their 2016 Christmas musical.
The town was made from 4×8 sheets of Coroplast that they cut with a hot knife, painted and sealed. They added decor from Dollar Tree to give some dimension and lights to bring them to life. They usually use styrofoam, but they have found Coroplast to be much easier, cheaper, and more durable. The blue styrofoam insulation has gone up in price and besides, Coroplast is much easier to store because it is only about 1/4″ thick.
They built a platform and steps that they used for the nativity and carpenter shop. The backdrop, again, was painted Coroplast. The carpenter shop was painted on an identical shape and binder clipped to the nativity piece because of quick scene changes. The floats were made from Coroplast and attached to their utility carts at the church. They were covered with Dollar Tree tablecloths and decor. Perfect size and they didn’t have to build anything. The 8’x12′ stars on the back wall were, once again, Coroplast that they pieced together and painted with gold metallic paint.
