(Uncle Henry, Dorothy, Toto, Aunty Em, the porch of the farm house circa 1939.)
- The Kansas farm house and cellar
- A busted chicken incubator
- Professor Marvel's Gypsy Wagon
- The interior of the Wicked Witches castle
- All the set dressing and props
(Farm house in early pre-paint stage.)
Originally there was supposed to be a solid roof over hang on the porch, but I like the way the shadows were cast from the supports so we left it at that.
(This thing appears as if it could withstand a tornado!)
* * *The broken chicken incubator-
* * *Professor Marvels Gypsy Wagon-
(Professor Marvel reads the unknown from his crystal ball.)
(Notice the "Oz" emblem painted in the peak of the eve,
this is what we call foreshadowing...)
* * *The Interior of the Wicked Witches Castle-
This part of the set had lots of favorite pieces of mine, pretty basic paint job of free form stones.
(Witches castle prior to painting)
The door entering the room was covered in weathered 1"x6" boards, and I used an old towel hangar as the door pull.
* * *My second favorite thing in the Witches castle was the fireplace!
(Fireplace before, bad picture I know.)
I love to paint!
(On the gates of the Emerald City)
The Tin Mans Heart-
For the munchkin coroners 'certificate of death' scroll I used a piece of muslin, using pencil I outlined the lettering and border.
We also used glitter in a bucket to act as "water" dousing the witch-
It has been a wonderful production and I have enjoyed it thoroughly, I'm starting to notice this years over all set theme at the theatre is "Decay" Im REALLY looking forward to West Side Story this fall. Now I am off the yellow brick road and on to my next project, Walt Disneys stage production of "Cinderella".
