THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE by Tesori, Scanlan and Morris – Fall 2010

Directed and choreographed by Jessica Middleton Murray. Costume Design by Annie Kaiser.
Vocal Direction by Barb Fontana. Orchestra conducted by Kevin Eagan. Sound Design by Corbin Wescott and Ailish Duff.

We may have a lovely, new theatre, but it still has limited wing space, and limited flies (just need more battens…. it’s only money, right?). Doing big-book musicals like this really take some creativitiy when dealing with a small budget and not a lot of room to fit it in.
Bright colors, wonky shapes and forced perspective was the direction I took with this. Not shown is the show curtain: rented drop that looked quite a lot like what I had already design – how perfect! (Drop was from Charles H. Stewart – look at the skylines collection.)

This design  is available for rent. Please contact me.
