Audrey 2.0 Project, Little Shop of Horrors, 2020
Painting and effects
This Piece was a commissioned for Scenery Hire Scotland Ltd
After 7 years of use the final stage Audrey Puppet needed remaking and adaptation. The PVC frame was re-covered with new plastazote foam. Lips were made from upholstery foam and covered in canvas for durability. The addition of a new wheeled stand allowing for easier transport, along with the new leaves, shirt and top jaw were all removable.
A new paint finish gave the piece a new lease of life.
As the final piece would be intended for children to operate on stage, a lightweight cantilever system was created to allow the bottom and top jaws more movement with ease.
