The Wedding Singer – PSU

Plymouth State University
October 15-18, 2015
Written by Matthew Sklar, Chad Beguelin, and TimHerlihy
Directed by John R. Briggs
Lighting design by Jaime Mancuso
Costume design by Danee Grillo
Technical Director: Bob Bruemmer

Scenic Design and Projections by Matt Kizer

This design for The Wedding Singer draws heavily from my earlier design at Jean’s Playhouse.    The basic functionality and look of the set is the same.

The projection installation is more sophisticated this time around, allowing a bigger background, with different proportions.    There was much more animation involved this time, especially in scenes relating to the Delorean, and the Las Vegas Strip.
