Oklahoma! - Summer Stage Wooster - Lighting Designer/ME

This image showcases the iconic "Dream Ballet" of the show. Using several hazers, I was able to paint both the stage, as per normal, and the dancers in color. The various conflicting colors demonstrated the internal conflict that is showcased through the Dream Ballet.
This image demonstrates the use of sectional lighting based around the current dialogue and song. In this instance, Ado Annie (Emily Patterson) is soloing on our house walkway.

This picture from the Wooster High School Drama Club’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream shows Oberon (Tyler Keating ‘20) looking down on the, “mortals.” Using the same fixture as with Puck’s glitter, this highlights the glitter on Oberon’s costume (Emily Patterson, designer), while a R80 (Primary Blue) filtered light allows a clear view of Oberon’s facial expressions.
This picture from the Wooster High School Drama Club’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream shows the end of the set transformation moving from day to night.
