G. Ground Plan
  A. Preliminary sketch showing the paper above the dances, gathered tightly on stage right.
B. Preliminary sketch showing paper overhead, stretching across to stage left.
C. Color introducted in this sketch, possibly by a front projection? The curved images support the same detail found in the tubes.
D. Interesting backdrop idea, for a future production perhaps? The black holes reinforce the tube shapes.
E. Introduction of blue color.
F. Back drop idea using 'six pack ringers'
G. Ground Plan. The bold black lines are masking curtains with light trees positioned in the wings. The bold 'pink' lines, indicate my suggestion for the 'six pack ringers' hanging positions. I estimate the depth of stage from proscenium plaster line to the 'six pack ringers' is 24'-0". The legs indicate a 12'-0" depth. The opening of the legs are approximately 30' wide. The proscenium opening is 40'-0" wide. Give me another call Erica and let me know what you think about the placement of scenery.
