This theatre lives in Desiderata Valley (in my game) hence the viaduct in the background...

Today is the final performance of A Midsummer Night's Romeo - a gritty little 'teen angst' piece, proudly written and directed by our very own Brandi Broke!
By special arrangement with the Veronaville Players, todays performance will feature rising star Mr Tybalt Capp in the lead role. (If we can stop Brandi from swooning every time Tye-tye walks by, it should be a very good show!)

Don't forget to pick up your tickets at the box office... the house should open for seating soon:

LOL Please scroll through all the pictures above for a virtual tour of the facility.

I have to tell you all that this build is very near and dear to my heart. Besides the Sims, my favorite hobbies are music, theatre, and music theatre. I love everything about the theatre - from walking the boards myself, to directing, stage managing, set building, running the lightboard, rigging (I was once known as the "Lady of the Flies" during a rigging intense show of Anything Goes), to chairing the play reading committee, and sitting on the board of directors. My two all-time favorite roles have been lead alto in the ensemble of Sweeney Todd: the demon barber of Fleet Street - Sondheim's score is challenging to sing, and soooo beautiful to hear; and as May, the main character in The Affections of May - a four person cast, straight play. As the lead character I only left the stage twice (except for during intermission) - and both times were for 30 second costume changes. Oi! That was fun! Really, it was

I also must apologize - as I feel this is not my best work. While this TS2 'theatre' community lot plays well, and your sims will have a lot to do and enjoy on this lot, there are many things I've left out (like the rigging loft and sound booth!) Remember this build is CC-free; and it's meant to be a temporary outdoor (Summer's only) venue - IE: The brick walls of the set are just painted - they're not real brick bricks. And the red curtain on the stage is meant to be a 'back drop' - not the stage's curtain. There is no stage curtain per se, it is a multilevel platform stage.
Part of my anxiety over this upload is because the Vista side of my PC finally died (completely dead - ain't no resuscitating that baby again) So, I had to use my DD's machine with the UC/Ultimate Collection - which I'd never used before - with no CC, no AGS, and no SimPE Ack! Also, no Windows/Vista on my machine = no Photoshop - I finally had to break down and learn the GIMP. So far, I'm not a fan. But, I got the job done. Sorta. I hope?

Anywho... I hope your sims will enjoy their new theatre! I'll leave you with a few "Words" of wisdom aspiring thespians should enjoy:

Oh, and yes, I made the green room green. LOL!
