Let’s talk about ambiance, shall we? Neon lights, palm trees, and sunsets on the Sunset Strip…bring these to your stage with Scenic Projections for Rock of Ages: Teen Edition.
So much in theatre is about our visual storytelling, the cues we give to our audience to transport them with us into the world of our story, whether that’s Elizabethan England, a fairytale world, or the peak of 1980’s Los Angeles. “Rock of Ages” leans heavily into that nostalgia for loud rock music, spandex, and every bit of over the top excess that defines the decade.
We know that Theatre-Makers often struggle with the tension of big, creative ideas and the reality of limited time and budgets. Scenic Projections are a great way to support your vision on a budget, and “Rock of Ages” makes a great case study.
Vibrant sunset tones hold their own against bright stage lighting and create dramatic contrast with the real world outside of the stage. With neon lights adding an extra pop that can flash in and out as needed to move the story along, the glamour and grime of the setting read instantly.
When the story takes a darker turn, your Scenic Projections follow suit. With smoke and muted colors, your audience gets an instant cue that all is not well on the Sunset Strip.
And added bonus, split screens give an instinct cue to your audience that characters who might be sharing a stage aren’t sharing a world. Scenic Projections are able to easily use color and lighting to create contrast between a corporate office and the bright lights and freedom of Hollywood.
