on the client's drawing, this PPT-PRO features two "porticos"
each with it's own roman blind and performance "slit"
in the bottom. The porticos can be folded against the frame
when not in use. It also features two performace slits under
the curved playboard. We look forward to photos of it in
use this summer!

recently designed PPT-PRO was commissioned by an Ontario
library. It is 72" wide and features a 52w"
x 28h" proscenium. The playboard which sits at 44"
is curved and includes a scenery slot. The challenge was
to design it to fit in the carry bag to retain the portability.
The playboard and the two large cross-pieces all hinge
and fit beautifully into the wheeled golf bag. The bag,
theatre, rear drapes and prop trays weigh just under 25
DOOR DESIGNS was commmissioned by the City
of Loveland in Colorado USA to build a portable
puppet theatre that reflected their Stormwater
Engineering Division logo in the design. Open
Door Designs took the logo and integrating new
elements transformed it onto the surface of the theatre
to tell the story of stormwater travelling from city and
mountain. Open Door Designs used digital
printing on cotton canvas to create this truly beautiful
theatre that looks and feels as though it has come from
the earth. This theatre is now being used to educate children
and adults alike about water quality in the area.
