In May Ginghamsburg’s Makeover Team out to create a stage design that would transcend throughout three month-long summer series’ – one basic background customized for each of the three themes. We began with a simple sketch and used “foam boards” (cut from 4′ x 8′ sheets) – stored from another series. These were painted and installed in a chevron pattern. For added visual interest we included cardboard fruit crate dividers recycled out of our preschool’s kitchen. Total cost of the background was less than $100.
Before each series we teamed to create customized stage pieces as well as tweak the colors on the chevrons- awarding us uniquely different looks for each series. Here are the three series’ themes in order:
FLIPFLOPS: dealing with our duplicity
JONAH: a tale of sin and grace
FRAMILY: sharing life together
