AYL: staging

A while back, when I was discussing the creation of the rehearsal schedule for As You Like It, I said that I was a visual guy. Trying to come up with the set design for the production, I felt like I needed a model.

But of course before I could build a model, I had to get some measurements…

and that allowed me to draw a rough stage…

which allowed me to put together a rough model…

3D, which helps me visualize how much space the actors will need…

Then I had put together the drawing of the tree…

which also included what would extend onto the stage floor…
And this I cut out and placed onto the model…

with figures to give the set some scale…

Note the four figures on their knees creating the wrestling ring… the actors roughly 10 feet apart…


a rough idea

now let’s build the damn thing…
