Rock ‘n’ Roll at ACT Theatre 2009
Rock ‘n’ Roll by Tom Stoppard was produced at ACT Theatre in 2009 with Scenic Design by Matthew Smucker. This was another set where I was able to bring my sculpting skills to bear. A large shattered tree limb was a primary visual focus of this set. Occasionally actual tree branches and trunks were used in the sets I helped build at ACT. This particular tree was quite large and hanging above the heads of actors, so a steel framed tree with rigging points was built and clothed in spray foam. I joined the painters for the sculpting process. During the installation of the set I helped rig the tree, as well as several set pieces that flew in from the grid during scene changes, including a stereo cabinet that the sound department had rigged with wireless speakers, a remote controlled turn table and wireless lights.
