Children of Eden:Props Master

Children of Eden was my final production at the University of Northern Colorado. It was a great opportunity to explore large mask making, and exploring a natural setting.

Prop walk through:

At my university, before tech started, we would walk through the props with the directors and designers to identify if any changes needed to be made before entering the space.

Animal Masks:

For our production, our director wanted eight sets of animals to represent some of the animals going onto Noah’s arc.

Sweeney Todd: Properties Master

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street was my second large props master assignment. The interesting thing about this show is that it was in the steam punk universe. The props in this section were made by my team of properties artists.

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.
