Years ago, we had looked into dollhouse lighting for the theater, but the only kind available needed wiring and an electric supply of some sort. Instead Mr. Widdle located some battery-powered mini thumb-sized LED lights that served us well for years. But I had always hoped to someday replace them with some authentic-looking stage footlights. Well, time and technology have responded with these well-crafted and beautiful lights. Did I mention they are also magnet-mounted for easy attachment and removal? Well, they are, and it’s a delight.
But the footlights are not all! We have also acquired two carriage lights (with the same copper coloring) that will be mounted on the Suitcase of Wonders sign. They will have tinted gels installed that will give off a lovely orange glow from above the stage. Very classy.
These new lighting improvements are making me consider performing more often in darker situations. After all, this programme is billed as an evening stage show.
