Carrie Davidson at Topeka Bible Church in Topeka, Kansas brings us these tangled web boxes. (Originally posted August 2013)
They were inspired by Shatterboxes.
This stage design was the first (and only) design completed without the aid of a full-time tech director. As such, they aimed to have a design that could be constructed in pieces, ahead of when the design would have to be placed on the stage.
The box frames were constructed by a church member and fabric was stapled to the frames. There were some Coroplast scraps leftover from previous set designs, so those scraps were painted black and used to frame the boxes. Strips of the scrap Coroplast of varying lengths and heights were cut and stapled to the boxes in random, criss-cross designs. Once the boxes were constructed, they had 2 full sheets of Coroplast left over. They created sheets that looked similar to the boxes by framing the Coroplast sheets with black gaff tape and hanging from the top edge of the stage. The boxes with the megabars mounted on the top back were fastened to the walls with L-brackets.
