A fascinating tale of three friends told in reverse, this was my second projections design for the UMKC Conservatory Musical Theatre department.  An innovative set with rotating panels became the canvas for an all-projected scenic design.  A front projector gave us a proscenium that lit up with the passing years of the story.  A rear projector behind the panels gave us our backdrops.
