Upstairs in the Sky
Stage management / Props for Quicksilver Theatre Company.
This production toured to schools and venues throughout the UK in 2003 and 2004, and is planned to continue in 2005 as a regional grassroots programme in nursery and reception classes. The show uses the classroom (where possible in schools) as the venue.
In the production two delivery people deliver a "make it yourself story kit" (.....to be installed by the delivery people....)
The box contains tubes, fabric, twigs and general household items as seen below. Following the performance the box was then left there as a classroom open ended play item.
All relevant paperwork (invoice, badges etc) had to be created to make it feel as much like a real delivery for the children as possible, as they weren't told about the production prior to it.
"Delivery people" name badges
(each invoice was filled out with the name of every child attending the performance and was read out at the begining of the show.)
