I've been looking over this site for the best way to make rain, and have only found small projects like rain outside a window. For my school's production of Jekyll and Hyde, we have a 40' wide by 3' deep catwalk permanently on stage. During Jekyll's "The Way Back" we want it to rain on him as he paces the catwalk. I just wanted to bounce some ideas off everyone out there. I was thinking to rake the catwalk deck towards upstage, maybe a 2" rake.( 8' in the air, but there's a railing, naturally.) We make a rain pipe to hang above the catwalk, and when the water falls, it rolls down the rake into a gutter installed onto the back of the catawalk. this runs to a hose off stage left to a sink we have in a closet just off stage. Of course the plywood deck would have to be waterproofed. It wouldn't be a closed circulating system, but we have some random water pipes on the stage that are never used for anything (maybe for fire crews?) They have valves at hand level and would be prefect to run a hose up to the rain pipe (maybe with the help of a pump, if the head is too high for the water pressure) Comments?
