Caucasian Chalk Circle

Caucasian Chalk Cirlce was the first large show I was props master for. During this show, I took the initiative to focus on running the shop, and making sure everything in line with the design.

The props were always present on stage, so they had to blend in completely with the set.

We created a puppet based off of a Bunraku Puppet. The puppet is in the first picture and a real child in the second photo.

Richard III

In the spring of 2012, the University of Northern Colorado produces a punk rock, dark version of Richard III. Sarah was not only working in the prop shop, but was also the head of the costume crew.

Her main project for the show was creating a dead body that could be carried on a gurney.

 The Process:

Sarah, at the time, was not familiar with the sewing machine, so she took a different approach to the body. She traces the “dead” man, created her own patters, and hand stitched the body together. It ended up not looking very human like, but once they covered it, the body was perfect.
