Transcript

  • 1. Bus Stop By: William Inge Presented by: Samuel Lee (Set Designer) Group 75
  • 2. Bus Stop Layout Refer to page 241 in “The Theatre Experience” by Edwin Wilson (12 edition) for position description
  • 3. Prop List • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 2 round tables 8 dining chairs 5 red barstools 1 wooden countertop 2 wooden benches 1 bookshelf (stocked with books/magazines and a copy of Shakespeare's plays) 1 fake franklin stove A set of pegs to hang coats/jackets on 1 fridge 1 sink A set of wooden cabinets A set of windows A set of large fans (backstage to blow on crushed styrofoam) Crushed-up styrofoam bits (used backstage to create a snow-like effect)
  • 4. Stage Design/Selection of Bus Stop • Proscenium Stage • The way the Bus Stop layout is designed is perfect for this stage because the picture shows that there are 3 walls used (backstage, offstage right, offstage left) • Checkered Tile Floor • Since Bus Stop took place in a 50’s diner, I think of checkered tile floors, waiters/waitr esses on roller skates, etc. because it has a classic feel to it; think of “Sonic” restaurants Proscenium stage: http://blogs.swa-jkt.com/swa/10318/files/2012/03/proscenium4.jpg Tile floor: http://www.colliatileandmarble.com/wp-content/gallery/tile-marble/tilefloor2.jpg
  • 5. Dining Area Design • Round Table • There will be 2 round metal tables in the dining area (1 on center stage and 1 down right of the stage) • Dining Chair • There will be a total of 8 dining chairs (4 chairs on each table) • The chairs will be oriented to where the tables are in a perpendicular fashion Round table: http://www.kymrodger.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Oscar-table-by-Oly-Studio.jpg Dining chair: http://images.zgallerie.com/is/image/ZGallerie/hero/sam-dining-chair-grey-013576109.jpg
  • 6. Bar/Kitchen Design • Wooden Countertop • The wooden countertop will be placed in the left center and down left area of the stage at a southeast diagonal (in between the kitchen and 5 stools) • Red Barstool • There will be 5 red barstools oriented parallel to the wooden countertop • The red barstool compliments the checkered tile floor and gives the environment of the diner a retro look Countertop: http://www.killingtime.com/Pegu/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/cherrybartop.jpg Barstool: http://www.missionrs.com/mm5/graphics/00000001/vendors/missionrs_QQBSRED_LG.jpg
  • 7. Bar/Kitchen Design Cont. • Sink, Fridge, Wooden Cabinets • These props will be oriented on the other side of the wooden countertop opposite of where the stools are (parallel) • Order of props from top to bottom: fridge and then cabinets/sink • The bar/kitchen is where Grace and Elma will be mostly spending their time at because that’s where they work; their workstation Fridge: http://www.woodcookstove.biz/gs/Propane_Refrigerators/images/EZ%201850Q.jpg Sink: http://oazi.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/kitchen-sink-2031.jpg Wooden cabinet: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-tOG7vpThg9M/TihwipJ0I1I/AAAAAAAAAM8/do-ntOc4wOI/s686/f+%252831%2529.jpg
  • 8. Other Prop Designs Bookshelf (filled with magazines/books) with a copy of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare • The bookshelf will be oriented in the up right are of the stage • The William Shakespeare play is a vital part to Bus Stop because the play of “Romeo and Juliet” is used to perform during Elma’s event that she wanted to do • • Bench • There will be 2 benches that will be oriented in the up center are of the stage • These benches will provide the characters in the play to sit and wait for their assigned buses to arrive and take them to their destination Bookshelf: http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/creator76/creator761009/creator76100900017/7840795-wooden-bookshelf-with-vintage-old-books-and-frame-vectorillustration.jpg Bench: http://jensenleisurefurniture.com/temp/enlarge/6523_LincolnBacklessBench.jpg William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”: http://www.easytoteach.com/images/books/romeo_and_juliet-book.jpg
  • 9. Other Prop Designs Cont. • Window • The set of windows will be oriented in the up center are of the stage • The purpose of the windows is to provide a visual of what the outside of the diner looks like for the audience to see • Fake Franklin Stove • The fake franklin stove will be oriented to the up left center of the stage • The reason why an artificial (fake) fire is used is because of the hazards of a real fire burning down the stage • The stove also serves as a way to warm up the characters in the play • Pegs • The pegs will be oriented in the right center of the stage • The purpose of the pegs is so the characters can hang up their coats/jackets Window: http://www.exchange3d.com/images/uploads/aff2487/Triple_rounded.jpg Fake fire: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41efQfgFFrL.jpg Pegs: http://mistymountainfurniture.com/catalog/images/log%20coat%20rack%205%20peg.jpg
  • 10. Backstage Prop Designs • Large Fan • There will be a couple of large fans oriented in the backstage areas of the stage (close to the doors) • The purpose of the fans is to create a wind and chilling effect • Crushed Styrofoam • A person will be carrying a bag of crushed styrofoam backstage dropping it in front of the fan • The purpose of the crushed styrofoam is to create a snow-like effect Fan: http://carnivalpartyrentsfun.com/wp-content/uploads/images/tents/extraLargeFan_lg.jpg Styrofoam: http://www.shinodadesigncenter.net/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/4650131005-300x300.jpg
