In Bad Girls, director Michael Burnie wanted abstract and interesting backdrops to be used in almost all the scenes.  He also wanted something that matched the images to run in a loop during scene changes.  The result received critical acclaim from reviewers of the show, "a well conceived set with great abstracted projections that worked well..." (Andrew Kay, Latest Brighton)

Michael added metallic clanging sounds with reverb, which transported the audience to a prison institution. The cast discreetly moved on stage furniture and set pieces in tandem with the scene change animations to provide an almost choreographed and slick experience.

The production received multiple positive reviews, one noting that "the backdrop projections creating the inside of the prison are particularly effective."  (James Ledward, GScene)

Bugsy Malone

 HD 

£50 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Bugsy Malone is a time-honoured favourite show, especially amongst schools as it was mean't to be cast with children playing adults.  Gangsters, more specifically. What could be more fun than that?  Doing projection animations is!  Here is a slideshow of scenes that I made for this school's production of the show.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (2023 updated)

 HD   4K 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is truly the most fantasmorgorical musical ever written.

StageProjections.uk has now designed all the scenes for both Act I and Act II, and they've been upgraded to glorious 4K.

Some animations are meticulously timed to the score and songs.

Crazy For You

"The minimal set worked extremely well with the video screen effectively doing the scene-change heavy lifting. This enabled the stage to seamlessly transition from New York to Nevada, to saloon bar, to street, to rehearsal rooms and even a train at one point." - Bromsgrove Standard

 4K 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Crazy for You is a romantic comedy musical with a book by Ken Ludwig, lyrics by Ira Gershwin, and music by George Gershwin. Billed as "The New Gershwin Musical Comedy", it is largely based on the songwriting team's 1930 musical Girl Crazy, but also incorporates songs from several other productions.

"Worked incredibly closely with Steve for our version of Crazy for You, as the director I had strong ideas on how scenes and backdrops needed to look and Steve really listened to what we needed and worked hard on bringing those ideas to life! He was able to grow my ideas and make each and location stand out whilst not distracting our audience from the action at hand.  Cannot recommend enough! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟" - James Baldwin, Director, Knowle Theatre Company

Fame

 HD 

£50 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Fame presented new challenges in projection timing and placement.  A critical sequence during the first number had projection playing in front of cast members singing the song "Pray".  They were lit with spotlights during individual solos so that they could be seen through the projector screen (gauze), appearing to be inside the windows.

Original buildings were modelled too, to represent the Performing Arts school depicted in the musical.

Frozen Jr.

 HD   4K   Music 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR. expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood. With a cast of beloved characters and loaded with magic, adventure, and plenty of humor, Frozen JR. is sure to thaw even the coldest heart!

Projections for Frozen Jr. are coming in July 2024.

Fright Night (Halloween)

 HD 

£10 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

A little bit of Halloween fun here, utilising a 'Scooby Doo' feeling for animated backgrounds.

Guys 'n' Dolls

 HD 

£25 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

The stage manager of Guys 'n' Dolls provided the artistic vision for this youth production. The animation sequence you see here proved to be an interesting challenge.  It played during the overture and into the first scene.

The first part up (up to the 'New York' text and skyline image) had to be projected on a cloth downstage.  The second part was to segue being projected on the back wall of the stage (after the downstage cloth was struck).  

Two projectors were needed each focused on their own surface, and two separate films were made which were cued separately by the stage manager once there was confirmation that the cloth had been struck.


This second clip was played during the bows at the end of the show.  A bit of fun utilising the show's logo and some relevant casino gaming background images with animated objects rendered into 3D.  (Stage direction by Alexandre Aragao.)

Note: For the purposes of the demo, these films have been sped up from their original timing.

Hair

 HD 

£25 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Hair was a trippin' experience.  It was director Michael Burnie's vision for the projections to enhance the mind-blowing songs with psychedelic visual journeys. In the second act, one of characters experiences a drug-induced hallucination which was depicted through fantastic acting and projections. Some of the other animations were captured from royalty-free YouTube videos as they were perfect for certain scenes.

G-Scene : "The staging is particularly effective with the projection design and screen animations on the backdrop capturing the psychedelic 60s perfectly. The second half in particular when Claude is on a drug induced trip is very effective."

The Argus : "The quality and power of the singing is outstanding ... all rolled out with enormous vitality against a backdrop of continually changing psychedelic projections."

Hans Christian Andersen

 HD 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Scenery projections for the Frank Loesser musical Hans Christian Andersen.  Some animations in this video are sped up for demo purposes.

Review: "The stage was set with very effective props when needed, but the stage is mainly bare: scenes and set dressing coming from brilliant moving projections onto the backdrop. Each scene was accompanied by a matched projection, sometimes the projections moved with the cast on stage while they were walking, and in one scene the backdrop turns 180 degrees so we start as the audience for the show within the show, then the performers turned round at exactly the same time as the backdrop, so we look at their backs as the curtain closes behind them – reminiscent of Phantom of the Opera. It was perfectly executed and very clever."  Susanne Crosby, National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA)

High School Musical: On Stage

 HD 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Disney's High School Musical lives on in a live theatrical performance with the stage adaptation of a story where Grease meets Fame (story-wise).  With catchy, memorable tunes the show glitters from start to finish.  For this adaptation directed by Michael Burnie, I recreated (in 3D) most of the school's exterior and interior scenes (rooms) to allow him the maximum freedom of background settings and scene change animations.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (2023 deluxe version)

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a legendary show that provides a feel-good experience for everyone who participated in it.  These projections will provide appropriate backgrounds for all the scenes in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. 

This updated deluxe version include many more scenes and animations covering the entire production.

NODA review excerpt by Oriel Bennett:  "What better way to take the audience on a romp through Canaan and Egypt than with the increasingly popular electronic screens that can change the surroundings with the flick of a switch?  Detailed and colourful artwork across three screens provided the backdrop with 3D, animation and day-glo-bright op-art patterns, never missing a beat as we crossed the desert, with pyramids and Sphinxes, to Potiphar’s place, Joseph’s cell, Pharaoh’s palace with Anubis standing guard, a humorously misplaced Parisian café and a splendid flying chariot of gold."

"The effect was bold and impressive and added greatly to the overall impact of the show, whilst eliminating slow set changes and the need for a large back stage crew, as well as maximising the stage space for the cast and its movement. "

There is also a version that utilises a three-screen Lightking LED controlled via Novastar, Resolume and Stream Deck.

Legally Blonde

The production's performing license came with lots of set pieces utilising vivid colours and the projections had to compliment these.

 HD 

£50 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Legally Blonde is a fantastically fun musical adapted from the film of the same name.

For this project we wanted colourful background images that would take us from a balmy California beach resort to the busy metropolitan hub bub of a hair salon and a popular college campus in Boston.

Les Misérables

£  - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Les Misérables was a challenging, and highly satisfying project for Brighton Theatre Group.  The production had projections from start to finish and the images had to complement the lighting and stage sets (including the barricade).  Animations were designed for key scenes to bring life to the set, and enhance the overall dramatic ambiance.

All photos in the demo video here are courtesy of Miles Davies (www.milesdaviessite.com).

The Lion King

£5 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Here's a useful animation sequence if you're doing "The Lion King" on stage.  An animated backdrop that can be played behind the stampede sequence.

Matilda The Musical, Jr.

 HD   4K   Music 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.

Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR. is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.

Oliver!

 HD

Oliver!. Ahh, that age old classic loved by theatre-goers everywhere.

This quick turnaround project had original artwork supplied by Jai Sepple (the director) who wanted some animation to bring his still designs to life.

Peter Pan: The Musical

 HD 

£50 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Unless you've got access to wires and rigging, Peter Pan is a difficult show to put on.

One way around it is to pre-film your flying sequences with your actors and project them.

Even if you decide to do practical flying effects on the stage, these projections can work in your background and save you loads on set construction.

Bognor Regis Observer review: "The various settings are ingeniously done by clever, moving special-effects projections so that we see the interior of the Darling house, complete with magically opening windows, then the children in flight, a flooding lake, the sea, the deck of the pirate ship, the crocodile and much more. This technology allows for rapid switches of location without clunky scene-changes or overtaxing the audience’s imagination as to what might be on the relatively bare stage."

Pressure

The projections available here include ALL the suggested annotations made by actors onto the 'maps', stylised in a hand-written red crayon.

"StageProjections.uk did an amazing job for us in masterminding the back projected images of the WW2 D-Day weather charts which we needed across the stage in our recent production. The AV work was highly praised by the Brighton and Hove awards adjudicator as well." Henfield Theatre Company.

 HD 

£25 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Pressure is a stage play by David Haig that thrillingly explores the responsibilities of leadership, the challenges of weather prophecy and the personal toll of taking a stand during the lead up to the D-Day allied force landings.  The Allied forces led by General Eisenhower are poised to launch. 350,000 lives are at stake and the decision of whether or not to attack comes down to the most important weather forecast of all time. The play centres on the true story of James Stagg and Operation Overlord, in particular the weather-forecasting for the D-Day landings and the resultant tensions between Dwight D. Eisenhower, James Stagg and Irving P. Krick.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert

 HD 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Priscilla is a wonderful bit of theatre.  Based on the film of the same title, the musical captures the story and fills in lots of 80's classic songs.

The BHOS producer (Andy Stoner) and director (Tania Newton) collaborated with StageProjections.uk to create a vivid digital landscape that carries the story from scene to scene, utilising animation in creative ways, bringing the audience to standing ovations at every performance.

"[The] production was slick and superbly presented from the outset with incredible 3D graphics projected and used to great effect throughout... The addition of an animated background for Adam’s chase sequence and then the use of slow motion strobe was a touch of genius and brought spontaneous mid-scene applause from the audience." National Operatic and Dramatic Association

School of Rock

 HD 

£25 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

In search of a budget solution to solve the problem of building expensive set pieces, SHCHS decided to use projections.

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your help with the projections for our show. They looked amazing and really brought the piece together, keeping scenes moving effortlessly - which is so important, particularly in comedy. We will be in touch again - and tell others about your wonderful work! " Kerrie Palma (Head of Performing Arts)

New projections will be available in December 2024.  Stay tuned!

Sister Act

 HD 

£100 - Go to contact form to express your interest.

Sister Act required several original 'locations' in its story line.  To achieve the required backgrounds for this production, an entire 3D mock-up of an original American-style church was constructed so that various rooms could be depicted, including the sanctuary, a vestibule, a dining hall, a choir room, some sleeping chambers and Mother Superior's office.

In addition some other models were created to represent Eddie's apartment, Curtis' club, and the police station.

"We used these for our production and I have had so many wonderful comments about them. They enhanced the performance and helped tell the story and we LOVED working with Steve at Stage Projections!"  Rebecca Bennett, Director.

"As with many shows, the need for various sets is a demand on societies. Steve Gallant should be especially commended for his creation of the projections used here. All designed from scratch in 3D and “moving” as the scene moved, the chase scenes and the TV in particular were clever and effective."  Mark Hall, National Operatic and Dramatic Association
