I am a current freshman and this is my first production here at Duke! I am so stoked to be working on Ragtime. From what I have seen this show is going to be amazing. I have been so impressed by the cast and how much effort everyone is putting into everything. I am on the props committee, and we have already started figuring out what we need for the show. It is interesting to see how different theaters have different ways of doing things. So far, we have gathered a list of props, made a budget, and started deciding what to make and what to build. The most daunting props by far are the plane and the movie camera, because we have to build them both. I have never had to build either of these things before, let alone make them look as though they belong in the 1900s! It is a daunting task, but I am excited to get working on it.
