I didn't know how to add the submission info with my Production Photo Challenge deviation, so I'm gonna put it here, if that's ok. 
First of all, thank you so much for bringing my attention to this challenge, I would have missed out on seeing all these other beautiful theatre submissions otherwise.
A.  What is the title of the play? Sweeney Todd
B.  What was your role in the production? (Milliner, First-Hand, Scenic Artist,  Stitcher, Make-up artist, Costume Designer, Master Electrician, Lighting Designer, etc…) Assistant Stage Manager/ Stitcher/ Wardrobe Head/ Associate Lighting Designer/ Production Photographer (It's a small repertory theatre, I had to do a little of everything)
C.  How long did you have to design, plan and do drawings of it before fabrication of the work commenced? We rehearsed for 6 weeks, but we only had a week in the space, and only 3 days to complete the lighting design.
D.  How long did you have to build it before opening night? 1 day to set up, 3 days to build the light cues.
E.  What was special about this production for you as a creative artist? This production of Sweeney Todd was different from any I've ever seen. We not only took away the entire element of time period, we cut the cast down to the 9 leads who sang all the ensemble parts, and we performed on a turntable set that was built to look like the sewers of London. 
F.  What odd, terrible, awful, or nasty challenges did you have to overcome to make this production as good as it was? We were working in a theatre space that's built for movies rather than live theatre so we were working on limited circuts with limited lighting rigs which is how we ended up with the red "eyes" you see in this picture silhouetting Sweeney.

My submission for the Theatre Production Photo Challenge.


A. The Tempest (by William Shakespeare)

B. Director (primary function). Also served as sound designer, stage manager, costume designer, and an actor.

C. I was given the project about about 6 months prior to auditions, and began development ideas early on. As we were an outdoor production, we did not focus on set design, focusing more on costumes and sound.

D. We were given 6 weeks of rehearsal before opening night. It wasn't until our first rehearsal that we were able to begin major focus on the show, as I was involved in another show that opened the weekend before our first table read.

E. As a director, there were two special aspects to this production. The first was the idea of women empowerment. As Tempest typically only has 1-2 women (Ariel being the "sometimes" woman), and Miranda is portrayed as weak and naive, I wanted to take the concept and flip it on it's head. I changed several characters to women so they played a more vital role in the show, and changed Miranda into a more strong amazon princess type character (as seen here) instead of her usual portrayal.

The 2nd fun aspect was that we took many classic rock songs (ranging from groups such as Metallica, AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Black Sabbath) and inserted them throughout the show. However, we found string quartet covers of the songs, so they fit into the time period of the show, rather than standing out. Each song also served to progress the show. As Ariel lures Ferdinand onto the island, she sings "Gimme Shelter" by the Rolling Stones. Caliban and the fools sing AC/DC's "Dirty Deeds" as they plot to kill Prospero (played by a woman in our production), Ariel puts the royals to sleep singing Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and the spirits celebrate the marriage of Ferdinand and Miranda with Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child O' Mine"

F. Overall, there were not many challenges in this production. A little actor drama here and there, but nothing that stopped me as a director from achieving my vision.

All too true. 

A society that values its artists values its humanity.

Unfortunately ours tends to value wealth over substance, fame over virtue. 

Our patron saint is Sisyphus.
