for our school talent show this year, the theme is 1950's. We are going to try and turn our stage into a 1950's soda shop, albeit, it's only a few weeks away, and we are not going to do anything like repaint. I have an old jukebox that doesn't really look that 1950's, but I can work with it, I think. Doesn't work, but I can simulate it working As for other things, I'm hoping to use lighthing to create the theme. I have some other ideas too, but really, any advice you have on 1950's would be great, as far as lighting goes . I want an "open" sign somewhere. I have one, but it's the kinda you buy at walmart not very big, but it would work for something, I figure. I have a bar I can work with. I can get barstools and another table. (might mention, basically, people will be doing many different things, and we will work them all into the 1950's theme somehow, like if they dor a skit about austronauts then our mc would talk about this skit from the future or something, you konw? Iwill have a few element on stage, a table, a bar, a jukebox, but most of the space will be open for acting in. acting, singing, skits, a punk band will play think too. ) Another thing I want is both a coke or pepsi sign, and a menu sign. The menu--I think I can get some material that is like whiteboard, and make a sign on that. Any idea how to put lettering on it nicely, without buying hundreds of letters and numbers from homedepot too ? (i think that might look crappy) I'll lighti it from the outside. the coke sign needs to be lit from the inside, right? I don'tknow where I could get one for free, but I could try and make one. Plexigas painted on the inside, with a flourescent light behind it....would that work, you think? The other thing is, I am thinking that the lighting then would have been harsh, like cold....I could be wrong, but I kinda want to have a flourescent up in the ceiling and flip it on and off rapidly every once in a while to simulate a flourescent that's dying. stupid idea, or not? feedback is appreciated! thanks!
