1 The Stage and Its Equipment ROP Stagehand Technician 2/5/10

2 Lesson Objective To learn the types of theatre spaces in use today in order to understand why and how the functional design of the environment in which the play is produced is a major factor in determining the type, style, and design of technical elements used in a production. Define key terms and identify modern stage equipment.

3 Key Terms Vocabulary you will use in our theatres Will be in bold and underlined

4 Theatrical Performing Spaces Evolution of spaces since the 1960s Influenced by Experimental theatre movements Economic pressures to make theatres usable for Dance groups Symphony concerts Car, home, boat shows

5 Dominant Trends of Modern Theatrical Spaces Reduction of physical and psychological barriers that separate audience from the production Cats in NY- scenery on orchestra pit, auditorium walls, actors entering through auditorium and interacting with audience Theatre spaces designed today are reflections of this trend

6 Stage-Auditorium Relationship 3 primary configurations Proscenium (aka Picture Frame Stage) The dominant mode of theatrical presentation for 300 years Thrust Arena

7 Proscenium Theatres

8 Elements of Proscenium Proscenium Arch Average height feet Average width feet Ours is 19 h x 44 w Stage The playing area behind (upstage of) the proscenium arch Theatres

9 Elements of Proscenium Theatres Wings The spaces on either side of the stage (hidden by the arch) Primarily used for storage of scenery, props, and other equipments used in a current production Apron Aka forestage Range from 3 deep to 15 Sides extend beyond prosc. opening 5 to 15

10 Elements of Proscenium Orchestra Pit Theatres Traditionally between apron and audience For pit band or orchestra to play live music during a performance As wide as the proscenium, depth 8 to 12 Adds distance between audience and actors when not in use- so combined apron and pit Removable floor panels or pit filler Hydraulic lift with 3 settings: stage height, auditorium height, and orchestra pit height

11

12 Elements of Proscenium Theatres Auditorium (aka House) Shape is roughly rectangular with prosc. arch at narrower end Each seat is approx perpendicular to prosc. arch To reduce reflection of sound waves on walls (creating echoes) no walls are parallel to any others Floor is raked, or inclined, from the stage to the back of the house improves acoustics and view of stage

13

14 Proscenium Stage Equipment Traps Removable sections of floor that provide access to the space below Can be filled with stairs, elevator, slide, or left open depending on desired visual and physical effect

15 Proscenium Stage Equipment Revolve (aka turntable or revolving stage) Can be built into the stage floor or be a temporary structure on top Depending on size, part or all of a set can fit onto it and rotated to bring other scenic elements into view

16

17 Proscenium Stage Equipment Slipstage Huge stage wagon large enough to cove the full width of proscenium arch Stored in wings when not in use Entire sets can be mounted on slipstage and rolled into place Need enough wing space for slipstage to be in offstage position Also can build smaller, temporary versions to accommodate productions

18 Proscenium Fly Systems Fly lofts (aka the flies ) The open space above the stage where the scenery and equipment are flown Fly (verb) to raise an object or person above the stage floor with ropes or cables Usually 2.5 times the height of the prosc. arch to allow scenery to be raised out of sight

19 Proscenium Fly Systems Grid (aka Gridiron) Network of steel I beams supporting elements of the system used to raise and lower scenery Located just below roof of fly loft Provides primary support for the weight of the scenery and curtains being flown.

20

21 Proscenium Fly Systems Fly Systems Key operating principle- counterbalancing In simplest terms- pulley is attached to grid, rope is fed through and ties to scenery, stagehand pulls on free end of rope and raises scenery If load is too heavy a sandbag is tied to free end of rope as counterbalance

22 Proscenium Fly Systems Rope Set Same as rope and pulley, but with 3 or more lines instead of one Ropes support a batten or pipe Ropes pass over loft blocks which direct them to the side of the stage house a grooved pulley, mounted on top of the grid, used to change the direction in which a rope or cable travels

23 Rope Set Fly System Lines pass over head block then down to fly gallery or stage floor and tied off on pin rail Head block- several pulleys in one Fly gallery- elevated walkway for pin rail Pin rail- horizontal pipe or railed with belaying pins, individual ropes are tied off on individual pins

24 Proscenium Fly Systems Counterweight System Steel cables instead of ropes Tied off at top of counterweight arbor or carriage instead of pin rail A metal cradle that holds the counterbalancing weights Balance the weight of the scenery When batten is lowered to stage, arbor raises to level of loading platform a walkway, suspended just below the grid, where counterweights are loaded onto the arbor

25 Counterweight Fly System

26 Proscenium Fly Systems Motorized flying systems Safest Lift capacity between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds This is what our proscenium theatre has Automatic- push a button Manual- crank a winch Some are computer controlled

27 Proscenium Stage Drapes All drapes are designed to mask the backstage area from the spectators to block the audience s view Grand Drape (aka main curtain, main drape, or grand drag) The curtain that covers the opening of the proscenium Can be flown or traveled to move horizontally relative to the stage floor, as with a drape that opens in the middle and is pulled to the sides

28 Proscenium Stage Drapes Grand Valance A teaser or border made up of the same material as the grand drape, used in conjunction with the grand drape it masks scenery and equipment just upstage of proscenium arch Teaser- a short horizontal drape used for masking the flies Border- Wide, short, framed or unframed cloth drops suspended over the stage to prevent the audience from seeing above the stage

29 Proscenium Stage Drapes False Proscenium A rigid framework covered with drapery material that is used to adjust the height and width of the prosc. arch. Sometimes unframed drapes are used. Hard teaser- the horizontal element Tormentors- the vertical flats that form the side elements Flats- a framework made of wood or metal covered with fabric or thin plywood

30 Proscenium Stage Drapes Show Portal False proscenium designed for a specific production Legs Narrow, vertical stage drapes used for masking wings used in conjunction with horizontal borders

31 Proscenium Stage Drapes Sky drop (aka sky tab) A large drop made to be hung flat, without fullness or pleating, used to simulate the sky Traditionally painted blue, now made from unbleached muslin so lighting designer can use light to create sky color appropriate to mood and concept of the production Cyclorama (aka Cyc ) A large drop used to surround the stage With side tabs or curved ends

32 Proscenium Stage Drapes Scrim A drop made from translucent or transparent material Sharkstooth scrim An open-weave material used to make transparent scrims Light from front is reflected back to viewerfabric appears opaque When objects behind scrim are lit, fabric becomes transparent When the scrim is also lit, objects behind are still visible, but become hazy and less distinct

33 Thrust Stage Audience on 3 sides Dates back to Medieval and Restoration stages Modern movement away from proscenium which some directors felt was limiting Most scenery has to be against or close to the upstage wall

34

35 Thrust Stage Equipment Lighting grid Network of pipes from which lighting instruments are hung, usually directly above the stage Can have additional hanging positions above the house/audience A location where lighting instruments are placed Dead hang To suspend without means of raising or lowering

36

37 Arena Stage Audience on 4 sides Another step in development of intimate actor-audience relationship Audience is closer to action than in the other to configurations Lighting grid instead of fly loft Usually covers auditorium as well as stage

38

39 Black Box Theatres Created as a reaction against the artistic confines of more formal types of stage space Flexible Staging Can have audience on one, 3, or 4 sides Can be changed depending on the design and concept of the current production Lighting Grid

40

41 Found Theatre Spaces Housed in structures that were originally designed for some other purpose Frequently converted into black box theatres Generally small spaces- intimacy Lower production costs Less expensive than building a new theatre
