After several requests from members, I'm happy to announce a private behind the scenes tour of the Old Globe Theatre!
Learn how the spectacular costumes are built; how the Scene Shop can make simple plywood look like fine drawing room paneling or an old barn; and how they built impressive sets to look like a stone castle, the “Grinch” storybook scenes by Dr. Seuss, or a remote island surrounded by water. Learn about the simulated food, statues, puppets and elaborate, fanciful headgear created by the Properties Department, and see their miniature bug orchestra in a glass case backstage. In addition, learn something informative about each of the current plays running, whether it’s a classic or, perhaps, a contemporary Tony Award-winning play or a new musical bound for Broadway.
$5 for adults; $3 for students and seniors.
