While hard at work on walls-to-be in Harbach theatre, scenic artists Theresa Murphy, Emma Lister, and Danielle Freeman look through the flats as they work, checking diligently for drips of paint and missed spots, talking just loud enough to be heard over the scene shop music. They speak hopefully of the days to come when their work will expand to include plastering those same walls with posters. They envision mosaics and intricate maps of the London Underground, and vow to work tirelessly day and night (even Sundays!) to make their dreams come to glorious fruition.
After the last of the flats is done, these artistic geniuses retire to the lively world of the scene shop to take their turns bending over the sink to wash out their rollers. Their work today is done--but as the days progress and tech week draws ever nearer we hope to see these warriors more and more as they are called into action to give our sets life.
