ANNOUNCING OUR NEXT WORKSHOP

The Vision of Set Design


Welcome to all our new and returning members for this next exciting season with Deep Cove Stage Society. As you may know, being a member has its advantages, and one of them is the right to attend our educational workshops at no charge. So, announcing our next workshop: The Vision of Set Design.

How do we take a bare stage and make it a cottage in the woods or a bar in the city or a living room/ kitchen combo? It is all in the vision of the set designer and you can be that person. All you need is some specific information which you will get from our own illustrious and hugely talented Ann Booth who has been designing award winning sets for years. She is just a wealth of information and will walk you through the process. Anyone can do this. All you need is a creative eye and Ann's guidance.

The workshop will be held in the


Theatre Meeting Room on
Thursday, September 10th from 7:30 - 9:00pm.

You must register to save your seat.

To do this, please call 778-338-4724
or email purplej99@shaw.ca

If you are not yet a member of DCSS, you are still welcome to register and attend. You will be charged a ten dollar fee which will be put towards a membership in our Club.
I look forward to hearing from all you budding Set Designers!

Cheers. Judy Levitt
