This is the first book to contain a comprehensive, detailed approach for the use of corrugated cardboard as a theatrical design material. This practical and profusely-illustrated guide explains in detail the use of cardboard as an inexpensive material and its multitude of theatrical design uses.
Briant Hamor Lee and Daryl M. Wedwick have each designed and built sets for more than a hundred theatrical productions. These have ranged from one-act plays to operas in educational, community and summer theatre operations. Their experience in creatively using corrugated cardboard to solve budgetary and/or artistic problems provides the basis for Corrugated Cardboard Scenery.
Written in a comfortable, easy to read style, the book will be useful to anyone (amateur or professional) involved with the design of props, sets, costumes and even puppets. It will also serve the needs of students in various classes in those subjects.
Lee and Wedwick explore the entire scope of the cardboard world, from raw material to finished, painted form; its use as an inexpensive, replenishable resource and its reuse as a free, readily available recyclable and exciting pre-used material.
Furniture, paneling, flooring, frames, soundproofing, architectural forms, structural shapes, masks, books, appliances, plants, puppets and so much more:
You can make it out of cardboard!
You can adapt it from cardboard!
It's already built? Use it!
