Calamity’s Scenic Design Begins!

Comment are off

Only twelve weeks until opening of Circle Theatre’s 2014-15 season finale, Calamity Jane, our very own, SuperTech started the first leg of the “scenic” journey.

With SuperTech still on doc’s orders to limit the use of his thumb, the decision was made to start the scenic painting of one of the soft drops. Within the weeks time, SuperTech, demonstrated once again, why he was given the titled of SuperTech.¬† Take a look from beginning to end of this week’s creation of the Fort Ballroom.
