HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT

This classic musical was told through a bold, colorful, and whimsical lens. This production had a high level of romance and grandeur within the story with whimsical and beautiful worlds throughout. Lighting created various worlds of fantasy and vivacity with the musical numbers to support the tone of each piece. The Dream Ballet in particular was a moment where lighting helped guide the narrative solely through bold color palettes and unusual textures to show Laurey’s mental state.
