The wood behind Into the Woods
The hit musical 'Into the Woods' has come and gone at Intermountain Opera Bozeman.
More than 2,500 people attended Intermountain Opera Bozeman's six performances. People who saw the show witnessed the massive two-story set made entirely out of pallets.
This was set designer Ashley Milleson's brainchild: a way to design the world of the Woodswithout wasting natural resources for a relatively short run. The pallets were given a second life as a supporting character in a musical.
When shows must close, many sets are not salvageable. Such was going to be the case for our Woods set until Master Carpenter Greg Vallor got the notion to donate the valuable material to HRDC's Emergency Firewood program.
