It's A Hard Knock Life

Shantytown scene from the musical Annie
Production week is full of ups and downs, especially when hanging lights! While other teachers enjoy a vacation destination over their fall break, I'm helping with set and lighting for a high school production of Annie.

Pictured is a scene in Shantytown, one of my favorites so far. The single set design works well for both the orphanage and Warbuck's mansion with enough flexibility to capture other locations. Of course pictures do not give the same feel as actually seeing the actors work in the space or feeling the connection between music and lighting.

Bethesda Christian School will be performing Annie this Friday and Saturday. Tickets are on sale at the office or at the door.
