On the 17th of June our Higher class got the opportunity to see behind the scenes at the Pitlochry Festival Theatre as well as a matinee of one of their summer shows: ‘Improbable Fiction’ by Alan Ayckbourn.
We got to see where they keep the sets and how they manage to put on 2 different shows in one day and be ready with 6 different shows for the summer season.
We got to see some of the costumes and even try out a quick change! We got to chat to some of the people in the wardrobe department and got a peek at an actress getting her costume fitted.
Getting to see the quick changes we tried, in the show gave us an appreciation for what the actors have to do and what the designers need to take into account when designing.
