Old Globe Tour and Stage Technology briefing

Abstract

The Old Globe Theatre

Discover how the magic is created with a Behind the Scenes tour of The Old Globe including a backstage look at the Globe’s theatres. Learn how the spectacular costumes are built; how the Scene Shop can make simple plywood look like fine drawing room paneling or an old barn; and how they built impressive sets to look like a stone castle, the “Grinch” storybook scenes by Dr. Seuss, or a remote island surrounded by water. Learn about the simulated food, statues, puppets and elaborate, fanciful headgear created by the Properties Department. In addition, learn something informative about each of the current plays running, whether it’s a classic or, perhaps, a contemporary Tony Award-winning play or a new musical bound for Broadway. Get a special under the hood look at the technology that runs The Old Globe.  See the technology that runs the integrated Ticketing and Fundraising System and also get a peak at our new theatre space and see how technology helps create and run the plays on our stages.
