Scene Shop Tour

Posted 18 October 2017

All those beautiful sets and props you see on stage started their life in the scene shop, where they were measured, cut, sanded, painted and primed before being sent down the road to The Armory's stages. Take a tour with Scene Shop Manager Seth Chandler, and hear about the process making magic happen, and the stories of the incredibly talented artists and craftspeople that make it happen. See some of your favorite props and set pieces on the walls of the scene shop, where they are stored and memorialized, and get all those "how did you do that?" questions answered.
