SHOWS: Matilda The Musical
« on: Sep 02, 2019, 01:08 pm »
Hello SM friends,

Has anyone done Matilda the Musical? Went to BTDT but Matilda didn't show up in the search.  Wondering if the magic chalk board scene really can be accomplished with a large piece of chalk with a metal insert and a magnet on the back of the board? The chalk has to write a few sentances that the audience needs to be able to see.  (I'd prefer video image of this myself.) I'm helping with some advice on the show.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

We did it with a projection. But we did much of the show with projections as the scenery anyway.
