As the semester draws to a close, I look back at some of the major aspects of the ‘Urinetown’ process. The paint call was definitely one aspect that taught me quite a bit. I have done some painting in the past, but never to such a scale as was done that day. I ended up helping with painting the arches for the sewage/secret hideout scene, as well as painted some soft-covered flats. It was interesting to see how you have to make a certain combination of water and paint to work with the muslin. And it turns out what knowledge I had from small scale painting works in large scale work – such as creating a base and then doing another layer. Plus, I had a lot of fun! I’d be interested in trying out some more painting of scenery in the future, that’s for sure.*
