Although I had been designing light for productions at Central High School, Sound of Music in February of 2009 was the first time I got brave and ask if I could design the set.
I was able to design, build, and paint the whole thing far cheaper than they had been able to do sets in the past.
This was the beginning of a beautiful friendship! 🙂
Lighting in the cafeteria was interesting to say the least. I had a total of 15 front lights and 20 overhead lights, including strip lights. The light board was an old two scene/preset board.
