Ignition Theatre presented
at City Centre Stage in June of 2012
This was an emotional show to work on, considering the subject matter, and that it was the last foreseeable collaboration with Director Matt Grue and Stage Manager Stephanie Grue (nee. Ridge); they helmed Ignition Theatre, which did fantastic work that was under-appreciated in Red Deer, and it's demise left a huge creative hole in the city for those of us who did appreciate it. It was great to really work with up and coming Set Designer Lauren Acheson before she headed of to the National Theatre School. Matt's vision for this show was that it look like a touring show, so I jumped at the opportunity to use the onstage trusses for side-lighting. Lauren was very open to my placing them where I wanted which was a great help, and I was quite pleased with the look of the show.
