Winter Carnival Revue- Wild Thing

  • Malone Middle School Academy St Malone, NY, 12953 United States (map)

The 2015 Winter Carnival Revue chosen theme of “Wild Thing” was excellent inspiration

for a group of Foothills ARTSociety artists as well as Franklin Academy and North

Country Community College students who created this yearʼs set-design. At their first

meeting in the Spring of 2014, it was decided to base the design on illustrations from

Maurice Sendakʼs childrenʼs book “Where the Wild Things Are.” The theme was a fun

one to work with.

Lead artist Pamela May was able to combine ideas from all the different artists into a set

that provided an imaginative background for the many varied acts in the show.

New comer to the group of artists this year was Arnold Sauther, a retired art teacher

from Salmon River. His sketches for the animals lurking in the Adirondack themed

background add a touch of humor to the scene. One of the main objectives of this

yearʼs set was to create a three dimensional look for the performers to fit in to. The

addition of three peep holes in the set make it possible for the performers to actually

perform from behind the set. We hope you enjoy the combined efforts of all the visual

and performing artists who made this performance possible.

Thank you to set-design committee members: Pamela May, Arnie Sauther, Linda

Crosby, Caron Roulston, Kief Sloate-Dowden, Bev Quenville, Charlie Tilson and Mark

Gonyea. Franklin Academy and North Country Community College students who also

helped were: Rebecca Branconnier, Kayla Tupor, Cheyenne Dollinger, Skylar Horner

and Marita Bray.
