the thrill of the hunt

This past Friday was the first full production meeting for Cinderella that goes up at Artpark (Lewiston, NY) in August. My role is props designer, and during tech I will also be ALD to LK.

This show is not intensely prop heavy, but there are a fair amount of period furniture pieces to be found. Although time consuming, the excitement of digging through dusty antique shops, odd smelling thrift stores and pages and pages of Craigslist postings to find the perfect chair is terribly exciting to me. It’s like visiting old friends when I journey to the shops I hope will hold the treasure I seek. I can hardly wait to wander the aisles of “the great American Garage Sale” at the flea market in two weeks. The thrill of the (furniture) hunt.
