The theatre takes shape

We've been very busy this week. Our temporary structure is almost complete and our crew is constructing the stage floor right now. First though, did everyone see this article in the Statesman on our temporary theatre? Huge thanks to Jeanne Claire van Ryzin who came out on Thursday to inspect our building progress. On Saturday we were out at Mueller again to put the cover on our tent!
Our volunteers unfurled the huge tent covering. The tension fabric cover is very big and very heavy.

Then we let the actors loose to carry cables across the structure so the covering could be hauled over it. Here we have Don Toner and David Stokey practicing their circus skills.

Lara Toner carried another cable across the top of the building.

Once the cables were across the heavy lifting started!

Huck Huckaby and Don Toner adjusted the tent cover.

David Stokey gave his approval on the cover placement.

At the end of the day Saturday we had our cover in place. The crew then began to prep the front and back sides for their panels.
