I have been at the shop again helping Nathan paint the backdrop for Act II in the Seattle Gilbert and Sullivan Society’s 2008 production of “The Mikado”. The panels shown in the first image are on the shop floor, shot from a high ladder. It is almost 18’ from the lower edge to the top of the mountain.
The second image shows some of the lower section of the backdrop. These 4x8' panels are being mounted on wooden framing. When they arrive at the theater, the sections will all be bolted together forming a drop 32’ wide and just under 18’ high.
