Time for tech!

ALD is currently in tech for Rhode Island College's upcoming production of Arsenic & Old Lace. Tonight is the final dress rehearsal and the show is in very good shape! We lost a little time due to snow, but everyone has really come together to make it work - The actors are funny, the music sets the mood, the flow of the show is good, the costumes are fabulous, and the details on the quirky Victorian set will be finished up tomorrow. For the lighting design, Kathy is using a lot of bold colors to create vivid indoor light that can be changed from warm to cool tones depending on the mood and time of day. Theatrical lighting instruments are also enhanced by several practical chandeliers, along with window and tree gobos to create spooky and shadowed moments throughout the play.

The show is being directed by Linda Sutherland with the scenic design by Katryne Hecht, the sound design by Alan Pickart, the costume design by Michael Dates, and of course the lighting design by Kathy!

Arsenic & Old Lace opens tomorrow night at 7:30pm in the Helen Forman Theatre and runs through Sunday. Check out RIC's webpage for more information. 

We hope you can see the show!
