August 2015

We are folding up our Opera company in Bromley Kent and have a shed full of scenery to dispose of.
Seems a shame to throw it away if a group can use it.
No charge you just need to take it away.
This is the info on our scenery and you'll see it used on many of the photos on this site except for the 2nd marriage of Figaro.
Not sure if we have all the loose bits but the scenery flats are still there.

Sherlock Holmes / Snow Goose / Any Production
We are selling some fantastic printed scenery, as shown in the pictures. The material is Foamex and it is very lightweight. There are a variety of set ups included. We have toured these as part of a few different 'son et lumière' type shows. We have a pub scene that was toured in Paul Gallico's 'The Snow Goose'. A cave scene with a hole cutout as part of our bespoke story of Knaresborough. Also, we have some scene from Sherlock Holmes which never made it to tour due to unforeseen circumstances.
We spent around £900 on the whole lot altogether, so we are looking for around £400 for the whole set of scenes, however we really need the space so we will consider any offer... please get in touch if interested. I am happy to answer any additional questions or arrange any viewings. We are based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Les Miserables Props for sale.
This is our wall and gates used in our school production of 'Les Miserables'
They are approx 8ft high by 4ft wide by 18inches deep. The gates are both 2ft wide, bringing the width of the whole prop extended together to 12ft.
They are made on a solid frame of 2"x2" timber and clad in hardboard rendered with a mix of tough resin glue, plaster and filler, very solid in all, and able to take the weight of a performer or two. The gates are jigsawed out of a sheet of half inch mdf and are on lift out hinges.
Both walls are on proper stage castors and roll like a dream.
They could do with the odd touch up in places where there is the odd chip, but have a few more performances left in them yet.
Am sure they will fit into the back of a high top transit van, the pyramids are only lightly fixed on top.

We are looking for around £150, which just reflects material costs and not the (many) hours that went into making them.
Am more than happy to provide further information or pics, so feel free to get in touch.

Shakespeare's Globe set
We are looking to sell our realistic Shakespeare's Globe set - it consists of two stories with 4 entrances on the set itself, and has an overall footprint of ~9.5m x 6m. It is free standing and requires no bracing, and flat packs down to a very small footprint. All pieces can pass through a standard door, and it can be assembled in around 5 hours by a team of 4.
I have attached a photo of it as it stands (currently being used for a production of Henry IV Part 1) which comes down on Saturday night, after which we would be looking to move the set on. There is a full 3D CAD model as well which I have included (you would need to install Sketchup Viewer to open it), as well as some 3D renders. It does require 2 sections of 1m x 1m decking and 2x 6' treads to use the upper entrances which are not for sale with the set.
We are open to offers in the region of £1500 - please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any more information, pictures or would like to view it in person.

The set is 26 metres in width and depth can be variable. It is held on scaffolding but this is not included. The French doors in the middle are usable - we used them for scene changes. We used the stairs and balcony for dance numbers and it worked well.
