    Behind the scenes

By Tom Carpenter
Daily Cougar Staff
Beyond the rainbow of lights on the stage that captures the characters of a theatrical performance in soft silhouette, wait the people who make the props. The scenery crew remains behind the curtain after their work has been completed in case they are needed to repair the stage props during a performance.

Drew Hoovler and his student staff perform their creative artistry in a room 25 feet wide and one city block long, more than 330 feet from end to end, in the rear of the Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre.
