Over the past month or so, I’ve been working on a pretty big project. The Kitchener Waterloo Little Theatre recently announced our 2016-2017 season and I had the opportunity to design our promotional marketing material. The posters will stay up in our lobby and we’ll use this material for each show before that show’s own artwork gets created. This was my first time doing any form of graphic design, so I’m really proud of the results.
We have a really interesting mix of shows next season. We start off with Lucky Stiff, a musical farce that follows a shoe salesman on an adventure with his dead uncle’s wheelchair-bound corpse in Monte Carlo. Next, a cast gets food poisoning, so the remaining actors decide to improv a Shakespearean Christmas show in Scrooge Macbeth. Lion in the Streets presents surrealistic imagery as a young girl searches for her killers. Immigration Acts asks the audience to decide between two views of multiculturalism in Canada in two one-act plays. Then we close our season out with a lot of pink with Legally Blonde!
You’ll also probably notice my own name on one of the posters. I’m directing something next season!
