Bus Stop by William Inge

  1. 1. Bus Stop By: William Inge Presented by: Samuel Lee (Set Designer) Group 75
  2. 2. Bus Stop Layout Refer to page 241 in “The Theatre Experience” by Edwin Wilson (12 edition) for position description
  3. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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
