Previously, I showed photographs of our tour of the Childsplay props shop. Today, I will show photos from our tour of the rest of their facilities.
The dye room, located next to the costume shop, also had a spray booth which was shared with the props department.
The costume shop itself was clean and well-organized. I love shelves full of labelled boxes.
Someone was working on a bunch of tails for a giant mouse costume.
I enjoyed the copious number of power cords hanging from the ceiling.
We also toured the administrative offices of Childsplay. Old props and bits of artwork appeared everywhere. Here, Jim Luther, the prop master, shows us one of his creations.
We saw many of Childsplay’s awards they’ve won over their 35 year history.
These puppets are delightful.
Below is a portrait of Sybil B. Harrington, namesake of the Sybil B. Harrington Campus for Imagination and Wonder, which is where all these shops and offices are located.
My wife, Natalie, found her long-lost twin sitting on one of the desks.
I hope you enjoyed sharing my tour of Childsplay Theatre in Arizona. Enjoy the weekend, and stay tuned for more information from this year’s S*P*A*M conference.
