Morning’s at Seven’s Ambitious Set

Union Street Player’s production of the comedy Morning’s at Seven includes one of the most ambitious sets ever constructed by the community theatre. Designed by Assistant Director, Anne McCullough-Kelly, the set is taking shape thanks to the faithful set construction of Jim Palmer and Pat Moriarity.

The hilarious comedy takes place in the back yards of two houses in a small midwest town c.1939. McCullough-Kelly did research on the internet to find home designs for the period along with corresponding colors. She was amazed to find that most homes of that period were pre-fabricated and sold through catalogs like Sears and Roebuck. The set crew has constructed the backs of the houses, which reach well above the curtains of the Joan Kuyper-Farver Auditorium. The set also includes a stump, a tree and two hedges – which provide staging challenges for the crew.

Plan now to see the fantastic set and attend this heart-warming comedy. Performances will be February 22-24 at 7:00 p.m. and a Sunday matinee on February 25th at 2:00 p.m.
