A student carpenter builds the set for Ithaca College's "The Light in the Piazza."

 Now that Plumfield, Iraq has closed what was a spectacular run, the fall musical, Adam Guettel's The Light in the Piazza, is in full swing.  Although Ithaca College students are currently enjoying their fall break, the production team for Piazza is putting the finishing touches on the set, lights, costumes, and sound in preparation for "Tech Week" Although the cast of The Light in the Piazza has been rehearsing for seven weeks, they have been doing so in a rehearsal hall, and with rehearsal props, costumes and set pieces.  Tech Week is the time when the cast and crew transfer the show from the rehearsal studio to the performance space and coordinate all the various elements of a show - acting, music, set, props, costumes, etc. - to create a complete production.  In honor of this experience, these next few blog posts will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the various people involved with The Light in the Piazza - who they are, what they do, and how they all work together to create what Guettel, in his lyrics, calls "a city of statues and stories."
