SLEEPING BEAUTY, SOUTH AFRICA

Perry Scenic Creative Limited were commissioned to design and build a brand new stage set for the World Premier of the newest production for the Imperial Ice Stars. Under the direction of Tony Mercer and Paul Mansfield - The Perry's designers created a truly dazzling set depicting the timeless fairytale beautifully.

A 3D decorative proscenium archway, lined with hand crafted fabric roses, lead through to a magnificent Palace Ballroom. The Ballroom had a truly unique feature - a balcony walkway with ice panels laid onto the decks allowing the skaters to perform above the stage floor and giving depth and a dramatic feel to the show. This unique feature allowed the skaters to actually skate upon the raised stage balcony!

The Scenic artistry throughout the show was beyond exceptional and our artists truly excelled during this project and it is hard to believe that the cloths were all hand painted! A unique skill that Perry Scenic Creative Limited prides themselves upon.

The entire set consisted of
4 large 60 feet wide backdrops all hand painted and 2 Appliqued - all with matching sets of borders and legs
3D Padded legs for a dramatic forest scene.
A fully functional walkway balcony and an aluminium structure disguised brilliant by our skilled carpentry department creating an imitation marble stairway!
A series of beautiful deep red velour drapes all with matching swags and tails and finished with gold tassels.
A Beautiful Gold Satin Reveal Drape - hung on 3 different bars created a dramatic opening to the show.
Various stage props including one stand out piece 'The Royal Bed' which was mechanically made to enclose the princess as she slept.

The whole show was a magnificent achievement for all the departments within the company. Each one added their own unique skills and working together as a team produced a truly remarkable touring set - one to be very proud of.
