Donations Needed for Dracula

Once again we are asking for donations of props for the fall show. The list below comes directly from the playwright (she is one of our parents!) As usual, if you have anything we can borrow, please let me (ekuhns@glnd.k12.va.us) or Mr. Burch (nburch@glnd.k12.va.us) know. We appreciate your help!

Donation list for Stage Props:

The style for this play is a mixture of traditional Victorian and Steampunk Victorian, which is a grittier and more machine-based version of Victorian, originally based on the ideas of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells; lots of metal, improbable contraptions and weapons, talk of flying machines, clockworks, gears—recent movies such as the Robert Downey Sherlock Holmes, Hugo, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Wild Wild West, and many others have used elements of this style.
