Abstract

My AHS Capstone project was a series of set and costume designs for two different versions of Rand H’s Cinderella. One of these versions is designed for North Shore Music Theatre [an arena theater] and is set in mid‐18th century Western Europe while the other, designed for Wheelock Family Theater [aproscenium theater], is set in 1950s Laos. The goal of the project was to determine whether the design process changes based upon the context of the show [whether it’s set in an arena theater in the roundor in a regular proscenium theater, whether there’s a difference in the chronologic and/or geographic location of the play, etc.]. The accompanying sketchbook details the process of going from a first read of the script through to simple costume sketches and scale models, covering script analysis, research, and preliminary working sketches.
