Beautiful Creatures – Student Theatre production

Set designed and built for Glamorgan Univesity theatre production ‘Beautiful Creatures’. A musical aimed at 5-7 year olds, based around animals of the jungle. We were approached to develop a scheme that was simple, lightweight and, most importantly of all, cheap!

After playing with various shapes and forms, we found that by isolating and abstracting the print of animals, we could build up an abstract jungle frame for the action on stage. Cut from large foam panels (aquired for free) and hung from the lighting grid, with this set we managed to fill all of the criteria we were given.
