Stage crew hammers away

Today, from 2:45 pm to 6:00 pm, members of East’s stage crew continued working on the set for the fall show, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The stage currently features hanging painted foliage, several two-dimensional wooden trees positioned in various locations, and large asymmetrical blocks that are currently being painted, among other set pieces. The paint crew today worked simultaneously on transforming some of these blocks to resemble marble, in addition to painting strips of canvas to look like tree trunks. With less than one month until the premiere of the show, the stage crew continues to work tirelessly towards an opening night strong enough to rouse any viewer from his or her dreams.
