Tape Burst

Brandy Gibson from Chestnut Ridge Church in Morgantown, WV brings us this strandy stage design costing less than $20.

Materials: 6 rolls of clear packing tape

Though not quite as versatile as duct tape, packing tape certainly has its utility. While virtually clear without lighting, the tape glows dramatically as it slices through the luminous beams. This set was simply constructed by connecting their catwalk to a central point on a stage batten [which was first coated with plastic wrap to aid in easy, adhesive free removal]. Between 20-25 strips ran overhead, while 15-20 strips spider from the stage batten to two trusses flanking the stage.
