Some of the cast and crew of PARADE spent the better part of Sunday away from the football games and in the theater, building the set. A large part of the set is a tree that we’re building out of chicken wire, ripped-up black masking curtains that are about 20 feet too long for our space, joint compound and wood.
And, if the 3/4-inch plywood used the creation of our tree could talk, it would probably say something like, “Hey, what’s this bullcrap? I was a friggin tree BEFORE you guys cut me down and turned me into plywood sheets. Now I gotta be a tree again?”
Yes, plywood. Yes you do. Shut up.
Below are some pictures from the creation of our still-in-process tree. For the finished product, you’re just going to have to come see PARADE, which opens Feb 3rd at 8pm!
