Hi, I’ve been using SketchUp in my stage design work for about ten years, but I’m new here at the forum. I love it because it’s so easy to switch between scenes when presenting the design to a director and cast, and then to port it over to LayOut to do the construction drawings.
This was my design for the stage version of “The Woman in Black,” by Stephen Mallatratt based on the novel by Susan Hill. The story takes place in an empty late 1800s theater, so we converted a generic 1970s theater into what you see below. Something else I liked about SU for this job was the transparency feature in the material editor, since I was able to make that scrim (the large piece of cloth hanging across the stage) translucent to show the setting behind it.
BTW, those statues on top of the columns are placeholders. The actual ones were based on Victorian cemetery statuary.
At this point I’m only allowed to insert one photo here, but later on I’ll have more.
