We recently completed construction on several new projects at the shop - sets for the National Aviary's Helen M. Schmidt FliteZone Theater, for BUDDY, The Buddy Holly Story National Tour, which is a part of our exciting upcoming Summer Season and for SIDE BY SIDE BY SONDHEIM, now playing at the CLO Cabaret!
The National Aviary's Helen M. Schmidt FliteZone Theater is the site of free-flight bird shows and interactive demonstrations of the bird's natural and trained behaviors. The set we're building will transition the space from a Caribbean coastline featuring parrots to a beautiful forest setting that will allow the Aviary trainers to introduce additional birds such as eagles, hawks, seagulls and owls with their new show. Our scenic artists are refurbishing and adding on to an existing tree and faux rock walls that surround a video screen. Newly designed (by our Charge Scenic!) features include backdrops, perches, obstacle courses and a waterfall! As a piece is completed, it is incorporated into the ongoing training of the birds so they can be introduced to and become accustomed to the new setting and props. The project is now complete and the birds are enjoying their new forest environment!
Here's a sneak peek at some scenery for BUDDY-The Buddy Holly Story!
