|VILLAGE BACKCLOTH (squared up for transferring)|
|Each square represents a foot. The audience eyeline is normally about a foot off the stage floor and here I have done a trompe l'oeil by inferring we are looking down a hill, - hence the descending roofs.|
|I have a feeling this was not for Dick Whittington but probably "Babes in the Wood". One village looks the same as any other village in Panto-land. Actually I have a problem with panto village scenes, trying to lay out the buildings to make an interesting scene yet not be the same as last year's production. I have occasionally tossed a heap of lego bricks down and used the resulting higgildy -piggledy shape as a basis for my village buildings.|
