The upper level of the auditorium! Home of many, many … many things
Tech store is currently on the stageright balcony, it’s where (as the name suggests) tech stuff is stored, most notably it has the lantern and gel store. (with exceptions of the smaller cables and mic’s, those are in the techbox)
Once upon a time it looked like this
This is what it looked like just before lockdown.
Set store is mostly on the stageleft balcony, but there’s also flat-and-braces-store in the back on the stageright side. All chairs are on the stage right side as well.
This is a 2008 photo from the old wiki. Note the lack of a workshop door at the end, and the usual amount of wood.
Under set store, you can find both the scaff (under the floorboards closest to the workshop), and carpet store (if you remove the steps leading up to the techbox).
This isn’t really a thing anymore. The tech workshop was a wonderful stomping ground of the tech manager, built in 2008 by the joint powers of the set and tech managers. Over the years in just became filled with crap ever less connected with tech until. In 2017ish it became a prop store. Now it is just part of the general set store.
This is on the stage left side of the techbox, it’s basically the place the old workshop bench got put, and is going to be a workshopish space to fix and work on tech things and other things like that.
Being a converted church, the Bedlam suffers from massive windows. Previously, the windows were blacked out with velvet maroon curtains with drawstrings attached. These curtains, more dust than fabric, were replaced Fringe 2006. The new curtains are fireproofed black wool serge, which is only a problem in that there are some irregularities in the fabric, resulting in light coming through. There is wood running along the outside of the windowframe, attached to the wall. The curtains are currently attached with staples. Each curtain is 1.5m x 4.5m, at its longest. The windows are only about 2.5m wide, so this gives some overlap in the middle and at the bottom. We used a 6m scaff tower from Generations to put them up and it took 7 days. The curtains were replaced by Alex Engel, Tom Latter, Richard Bell, Helena Larkin, Charlotte Jarvis, Matt Wieteska, Ruth Wilkinson, with emergency aid from Charlotte Coles and Clemmie Cooke. Alistair tried but did silly things like give blood so wasn’t allowed to work at ‘dangerous heights’
The door between the then-wardrobe-now-workshop and the SL balcony was put there during the 2014 christmas break.
Look! An insane picture that has an attempt of measurements on the balconies. They’re relatively accurate, but if you need stuff to be very precise I can recommend remeasuring things (if not because of inaccuracy then because Bedlam’s probalby shifted size again)
