From Assassins to Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night opens this Saturday, and it is strange to think that we had just started building out at the Train Station last Friday, and finished all of the platforms on Sunday, using the pieces from Assassins that we struck after the final performance.

We built a 40ft long platform with three adjacent platforms jetting off of it, a porch unit with two rows of seating, and Malvolio's prison. It was interesting trying to paint all of the decking since all of the water that we would spray on for the glazes, would evaporate within seconds.

It is so wonderful being able to work outside and see the mountains in the background. Even with the copious amounts of bug spray, sunscreen, sunburns, and sweat that has been poured onto this set, I would do it all again in a heartbeat!

I feel so honored to be a part of Endstation this summer. Here is my final farewell to Assassins, I miss you all!
