Poof! The Musical

apoof-7666ShowStages designer T. Erin Gruber conceptualized and delivered an immersive projection design for the Sterling-nominated Poof! The Musical at Fort Edmonton Park’s Capitol Theatre.

The venue is equipped with more than half a dozen projectors for summer presentations of Northern Light, a multimedia short film about Edmonton’s history. ShowStages took control of the massive Watchout system to bring a dynamic visual experience to this terrific new work.

The visuals (Bergen doubles as designer) capitalizes on the Capitol Theatre architecture by a cunning use of zoom-in projections (created by T. Erin Gruber) on screens that magically create depth perception, and take us into the rooms of Awanda’s creepy grand mansion.
