STAGECRAFT: 50 Years of Design at Hartford Stage

In celebration of Hartford Stage’s 50th Anniversary Season, the STAGECRAFT exhibit consists of a selection of costumes, props and scenic elements from the company’s extensive collection.  A hallmark of the theatre’s work is the quality of the work that appears on stage, all of which is built here in Hartford.  Scores of locally-based artists, craftspeople, and technicians created these pieces to animate the visions of some of the world’s most prominent theatrical designers.

March 7 – April 18, 2014: New England Carousel Museum, Bristol
