It's been a HECK of a week! My little trio worked long into to bring life to Bedford Falls, but we could not have done it with out the help of the entire cast, crew, volunteers everyone has done an AMAZING job to bring this production to life! So without further adieu, here's "It's A Wonderful Life"- according to Mick Jordan.
(After!)This was the first room we worked on, Sheldon cut the boards for the wainscoting I painted a plate here, radio there a few family pictures a viola! You have the Craftsman inspired dinning room of Ma & Pa Bailey.
(Mary Hatch's House, before)
(Using 1x6 board we constructed a mantel for the faux fireplace)
(The Home of George & Mary Baliey. Before/during)
(The Bailey Bros. Building & Loan, before)
I took inspiration from old pictures of offices in the Empire State Building. It's here that George jumps on the desk and trys to keep everyone calm during the depression, which leads into the musical number "We've Got to Stick Together."
(Part 2 Building & Loan)
Highlights include a fabulous antique type writer, and the "Class of 1939" group photo that my Grand Father is in from when he went to trade school in California.
(The Bridge, before)
I used white quilt batting to substitute for snow, we drifted it on and around the eaves of the bridge, and sprinkled glitter so it will catch he light and sparkle like real snow.
I've had so much fun working on these sets, I'm so thankful I was given the opportunity. I've loved working with the Directors Cast and Crew and I hope this might just be one show in a long line of set dressings for me! The hard work, the details, everything well its just... Wonderful.
