MTI Show Support: Performing a show again

Heather,

I spoke to my state representative with this exact question. Unfortunately, you will have to order a completely new showkit. I was hoping to simply pay for licensing and not materials, but they do not offer that option.

MTI Show Support: Flying Actor Ideas

Our story for flying...

A few years back we did a roduction of "Just So" which requires the Kolokolo bird to "fly down" to save the Elephant child. Our design team created a fairly complicated rotating linear lever system that was to provide a gentle arc flight path. The height difference from start to finish was about 24", but she travelled around an 8' (or so) arc from start to finish. We kept it slow (safety), and despite everyone's efforts I was left with doubt that the effect was as succesful as it could be. That is until one performance, where right in the middle of the Kolokolo bird's flight a tiny voice of innocence from the audience gasped out "She's FLYING!!!". That was, and shall remain, a pure moment of theatrical magic.
