Theater Scenery - Actors Conservatory

video
The Actors Conservatory Theater in Lewisville is where my kids began acting. I painted sets there between 2006 and 2008 for their productions.  The backdrops were all between 9 and 12 ft high and approx 40 ft wide.  It was a huge undertaking before each show, to get the scene painted on time, but I really enjoyed covering the wall with a scene that would set the stage for each show.  I used ordinary interior flat house paint and a really tall ladder!  My favorite scene was Wind In The Willows, which is not in the movie, but photos are on the Theater Scenery page.  More info about the Actors Conservatory can be found at http://getintotheact.org/.  Credit for the large panoramic photos goes to Joyces Photography http://www.joycesphotography.com/
