Practicals & Prop Concepts


The concept for Much Ado About Nothing, set during the American Civil War, included actor-musicians and required instruments authentic to the era. I selected instruments whose sound quality meshed with the representative groups in the play. 

  • A fife and drum corps underscored Don Pedro and his militia.  

  • The long suffering Don John was accompanied by harmonica.

  • Leonato's household was underscored by the warm, homespun sound of folk music.

Angel Street  Practicals

Light, lighting fixtures, and the illuminating value of facts figure significantly in the theme and action of the play.  The script requires that actors control lights on stage, so practicals were a justified choice.  The practicals also serve as a foil in a home darekened by psychological control.
