First off welcome to the Booth! You've found the right place to ask that kind of question... you just haven't found the right place to post it. Not everyone reads the New Member Board so ask it again over on the Special F/X Board and I'm sure someone can help you.

Enjoy, there's a lot to learn here.

Welcome Aboard ! Hey I can do some digging and see if I have any old drawings lying around. I did the knife throwing trick with mousetraps and solenoids if that helps any. It can even be accomplished with trick-lines and hinges if you get the mechanical advantage right.

Welcome Aboard!

If I recall my archival diggings correctly, Annie Get Your Gun was one of the first musicals my former high school ever did.
