​High School Rhinoplasty

- making masks with a master -

The dilemma for students performing in the Walkerville Centre for the Creative Arts production of Rhinoceros is that they each need a mask for the wild, satirical comedy.

On Friday, March 22nd, Deb Erb, a master in the backstage arts of props and set pieces, will help the WCCA actors design and construct their own Rhino masks out of foam camping mats and paper mache.

Erb is an award-winning designer and theatre artist from Woodstock who has worked with Stratford Off the Wall, an artists' collective which builds props and conducts workshops for a variety of theatre projects.

Students from the Walkerville S.T.E.P.S. class will also participate, assisting the student-actors with the paper mache layers of their masks.

​For more information contact Jeff Marontate @ 519-252-6514 ext. 31416 or email jeff.marontate@publicboard.ca.
