Theater threads and masks

Designs and examples of sets, makeup, costumes and props were shown in Theater On The Side, a practice room for drama and stage work near Bush Theater, on the campus of Central Michigan University.

As I walked to my subject for my photo project on April 23, I passed the most interesting room with nobody in it.
Lights fixed on displays in the room with black ceilings and walls made the room feel dimensionless. The lights were fixed on work that had been done by Central Michigan University theater students during the year.

The CMU theater program has produced successful alumni, including actor Jeff Daniels, who notably played Harry in the movie "Dumb and Dumber" with Jim Carrey, which came out in 1994. Daniels attended CMU in the 1970s. Terry O'Quinn, a Newberry, Mich. native known for playing John Locke on "Lost," also attended CMU in the 1970s.
