Red Mount

‘I Want Everything’ – The Godfathers


Larry Goodgirl informed the Set Team that the outdoor stage might be constructed free of charge by liasing with some construction and scaffolding people from Bircham Newton, a technical training college which has some affiliation with NORCAT.


We evaluated usefulness and effectiveness of the location upon which the set is to be constructed (a small hill with a Chapel on it in King’s Lynn’s Walks parkland), given that it will be an outdoor show on HALLOWE’EN.  In discussion with Larry Goodgirl, we determined that a certain view of the Chapel would be the most desirable.  The Chapel’s night-time splendour could then be used as the actual ‘scenery’ for the outdoor show (which will not use the set designed for the indoor version).  If the Chapel’s entrance and main doors can open onto a two-level stage, extending into the parkland, then we can use the Chapel as ‘backstage’, too.  This way of doing things will be the most attractive and effective.


Plans for an outdoor stage are now, slowly, developing.


Whilst bearing in mind that the budget has yet to be set, the Set Team discussed what materials might be required.  A variety of materials was settled upon (for indoor and out), most of which we think can be negotiated free of charge, or given to us on loan.


In addition to various inter-college ideas and offers, we contacted Campbell’s Soups for use of cardboard (which I would like to use to construct my ‘jagged’ ‘megaliths’).


Tonight, Miranda and I went out.
