Children's Playhouse and Beds

This was a castle playhouse and bed set-up designed and built for a family in Las Vegas.

It was designed for (2) twin beds in the top turrets, and ample toy storage and play areas underneath. It also allowed the parents to keep the clutter in the castle, leaving the remainder of the room clean.

Theatre Design

We have designed and fabricated sets, props and puppets for many different theatres, and worked on the following productions: Oklahoma!, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, Nunsense, Seussical, A Midsummer Night's Dream, My Fair Lady, The Maids, Crazy For You, The 1940s Radio Hour, Richard III, Volpone, Oedipus Rex, Much Ado About Nothing, The Sound of Music and many others.

Miss Utah

Carribean Nights was the theme for Miss Utah 2007. We designed and fabricated a multilevel set inspired by the white sands and crystal blue waters. And of course what Carribean locale would be complete without palm trees.

For Miss Utah 2008 we designed a 1940s inspired patriotic set with elements of the flag and graphic billboards and recruitment posters from WWII.

BYU - TMA 260 Production Class - Dancing at Lughnasa

This past fall semester, I instructed the TMA 260 class at BYU. It was the set construction class for the production of Dancing at Lughnasa. In less that two months, the four students and I (with some help from the scene shop) built and painted this set in the Margetts Theatre.
