This set design for “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” was for a production by Denton Community Theatre, Denton, Texas. It was staged October 29 through November 7, 2010.
The design involves one set piece -- a “false proscenium” -- behind which is a rear-projection screen. Video is projected on the screen that simulates 1880’s period scenic backdrops, curtains, and special effects. The videos come from files on a computer. The computer is not included in the rental, as well as the rear-projection screen.
The "false proscenium" is approximately 12 ft. tall by 16 ft. wide and 4 inches deep. The rear projection screen is 10.5 ft. tall by 15 ft. wide. The video segments are Quicktime movies embedded in a Keynote file running on a Macintosh computer.
