Leaping Off the Page with GREAT. / February 8, 2018
The past two years have been big for our friends at GREAT Theatre. Not only did they celebrate “20 YEARS OF GREATNESS” as one of Minnesota’s top community theatres, they also moved into the brand new GREAT Theatre World Headquarters: a state of the art space complete with rehearsal halls, scene and costume shops, administrative offices and a learning lab theatre. It’s a big step in the right direction for an amazing community asset, and we’re honored to continue playing a role in helping them succeed in bringing transformational theatre experiences to the community.
Now into our 5th year of pro bono work for GREAT Theatre, we took a literal leap and moved their latest two seasons in a fresh, whimsical direction. To capture the magic and movement of live theatre (seriously—trampolines were involved) we worked alongside photographer Guytano Magno, area amateur actors and GREAT’s in-house costumer.
Utilizing GREAT’s treasure trove of elaborate costumes and Adventure’s eye-popping art direction, it was truly a collaborative effort to make these plays shine. Each final show poster features the season’s beloved characters moving through striking poses in front of poppy pastel and jewel-toned backgrounds. By adding some sparkle and shine and a mix of both bold and playful type, we’ve solidified GREAT’s place in the region as a leader in quality, fun and professional community theatre.
