The Sky Line of New York from the 1930's was the backing for our production, "Two Gentlemen." It had nine strings of Christmas lights attached to its back with almost all of those little light bulbs sticking through small holes. Each string had 100 bulbs. That's almost nine hundred!!!The Sky Line was made using 1/4" Luan ply & 1"x3" furring strips laid flat. First we "gridded" the designer's drawing onto the plywood. The designer's front elevation was drawn in 1" scale. So, for every inch on paper, we needed to increase the size to 1 foot on the plywood. Please refer to the page about griding and the one on scale if you need more info.
