Treasure Island – Birmingham Stage Company
TREASURE ISLAND detailed sets and props all made in our workshops for this touring production by Birmingham Stage Company. We had to animate skeleton to jump out of a grave, make a ships mast turn magically into a fully grown dead tree, sculpt authentic large scale ships lanterns that lit up. All the set was based upon a mass of complicated steel frames that bolted together on stage. The fire retardant timbers were sand blasted prior to painting and the decks laid over the steel frames. All the props, including barrels, pistols, daggers and treasure maps were made in house. Even the ships rigging was specially woven with a steel wire through the ropes to comply with safety regulations.
