I'll probably have a few more of these over the next few weeks. I realize there's a lot of black... I'll do what I can to fix that. Maybe Carlos will forcibly turn the lights on...

The quip about "high school play" is quite appropriate, since I built this stage to match that of the local high school where my wife was co-directing "Romeo and Juliet" a few years back. It's the same stage I directed "Annie" on, too, come to think of it. It's only got a few more years in existence before a new school is built. It's a shame to lose this space, since it's the only non-proscenium arch space in the district. Then again, the school was poorly built in the sixties with a California design not suited to Canadian winters (even mild ones) and on a clay seam which has done terrible things to the foundation. Several classrooms have cracks in the walls sufficient to let the light through. One teacher made a sundial on his desk to make the most of the light. For most classrooms, it's the only light they get - of the vaguely penal and totally hippie styles of the 60s, this school got a triple-helping of the former.

That said? One of my favourite schools.

Maybe you should sign up to help demolish the old school, and grab some rubble for memorial pieces? I don't know if they'll sell for much (more for sentimental value probably) but maybe you're not the only person who liked the school. ;)

@Su - thanks!

@Brickvoid - I've suggested some sort of fundraiser for the Drama dept. a few times. After your last show, the students paint their name and show onto the green room wall. There's a lot of memories up on the walls there. Plus there's the seats and what have you, if they're not being retained for the new space.
