The Backstage

Behind the stage at Southam Hall is a great deal of space, used for storage of lighting, equipment, instruments, and other items. 


This included a back of the set view in regards to Opera Lyra's production, as well as spare costumes on racks.

  5. Backstages are an amazing maze. Ours has a large sewing Dept for making costumes. Yours probably has the same thing. Here, front of house people always got a back stage tour.

    @Marianne: I do too.

    @Janis: it's a completely different side of things!

    @Birdman: unless one works there, this is the only chance one gets to wander about.

    @Red: yes, there was something similar here.

    @Linda: it does stand out!

  20. makes you appreciate all that goes into a production.

  21. It does take a massive amount of equipment and people to put together a play or a movie. Your photos give a good sense of just how massive. I always get a kick out of watching the credits after a movie...some of them go on and on and on - for a week! :)

  23. @Denise: I enjoyed making the visit. Still more of this to come.

    @Nancy: it was!

    @RedPat: there was a whole lot to see.

    @Marleen: thank you!

    @Norma: indeed!

    @Ciel: thank you!

    @Cloudia: I certainly think so.

    @Tex: there are a whole lot of people who go into making this place run.

    @Lowell: there are so many people involved in what goes into this place, and a lot of them don't get the spotlight.

    @Gemma: it definitely is. I noticed in this same area a crate marked dry ice, which has an interesting effect!

  26. I don't think I've seen much of the backstage area of a professional performance venue. This is very interesting.
