Getting there with R&J

11 Jul

A new design model for Pilot Theatre’s production of Romeo and Juliet was unveiled last week by Designer, Chloe Lamford.

Again in the centrally raked area will be about 600 bunches of flowers that have been left to create the shrine effect for us.

A skeletal metal structure which will be remodeled to produce two options for different sizes of venues will be recreated.

The large box section upstage will allow framing and activity to happen for certain sections.

Again as part of the process Chloe, LX Designer, Richard Howell and I were able to go through the script and work out the needs of the text and the set and where certain sections might happen.

This is a very rewarding and interesting part of the process and both Chloe and Richard have come up
with some brilliant ideas and solutions.

The final model presentation is on July 26th and in the meantime we will be honing the ideas and structure.

In other news we are now finally cast and the production team are now in place.

We had over 4,400 applications from actors, and in the end we saw over 150 people for the 8 roles on offer.

We have finally settled on the cast and all have now accepted. I am sorry that Katie and I could not see more people, but we did see almost 20 actors for each part.

More information will be going online soon including the actors details, as well as more design and costume ideas.

We go into rehearsal on August 16th.

This next week will be spent looking at the soundtrack with composer Sandy Nuttgens, and a potential new track release for

More soon…
