In the Shops - Thanksgiving Dinner

Contributed by Rebecca Bellan

Production for Vengeance is the Lord’s is moving right along. The shops on Huntington Ave. are busy working hard and working on schedule.

The Paint shop is doing almost everything at once right now. They are working on varnishing the wood, painting green walls, setting up the exterior, and plotting wallpaper. The only thing they are not thinking about, said assistant charge artist Pecan Johnson, is painting the DS extension wall currently being built in the scene shop. Hopefully we'll get to it before tech.

New tables and chairs have been added to Prop shop’s list of accomplishments for the upcoming show. They also have received their orders of faux Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas ham to try out in rehearsal. The prop food looks surprisingly delicious and authentic…from afar. Up close, not so much, but the audience will surely be fooled. Hopefully the actors work well with it.

Head draper Anita Canzian said that the cast is about ready for their second round of costume fittings. The first round, she said, was about hearing the actor’s input about which direction they would like to go with their costumes. In a modern show such as Vengeance, the first fitting is more intellectual than just trying on clothes. The second round of fittings, which will happen on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, will serve to continue refining and deepening the ideas for the costumes. Anita said that the costume shop and the cast have explored more in terms of direction and action.
