SO! I'm working on a Production of "The Little Mermaid," and in one of the scenes we have the Sea Witch come out with a Clamshell So we're reading the script over the weekend and the director looks at me and says "Hey! You can build that for us!" It needs to be about 1m wide and about 80cm tall, (Sorry for those who don't use metric!), must be able to open, needs to have some space inside to hold some small(ish) props, AND needs to have a light source inside. The light source is no problems, I'll just rig up a few high-intensity LEDs inside - the audience only sees the backside of the "shell." My question is - any ideas on possible construction methods/materials? I leave this in your capable hands, Cheers, Patch.
