Ok here is a little collage I made from interweb images. This is to see if we are all on the same page regarding the type of theatre we want to create here.
I have in my head something small and ornate like the two baroque theatres in Cesky Krumlov (top left). In the top right are four images that show four possible colour schemes for us to choose from. I really like the blue and gold scheme - I think it looks classy and sophisticated. Red feels a little 'cinema' to me.
All four of the upper left are really nice for design ideas.
I agree that Red seems a bit too royal. Blue would be a nice change of pace I think.
But I am not an expert on color at all.
I agree Anstett. Here is my new design for a baroque stage. The grey bits on each side are curved steps. The front dangly bits are gold-painted carved wood (?). I am absolutely confident that Meshon can curve wood to this exact shape. I am attaching a .png at the correct scale so Meshon can use this as a template.
I have recoloured Dangerwolfe's curtains to match the two colourschemes I liked the best. I also managed to remove the shadow around it (with HUGE difficulty!).
The stage looks really fantastic! I'm sorry I don't have a whole bunch of time right now, but I will hopefully catch up in the next day or two and get to some wood-bending. And kudos for the shadow removal, I fully understand what that can entail!
Thanks Meshon - here is more work on the stage.
Cool project, how did I miss this?
If you like the chairs I made ( they are photos of a friend's dining room set ) I also have them in blue.

And here are a couple other blue chairs I did.

Edit note: I cleaned up the last blue chair
That's fantastic Bogie - we'll definitely use those lovely blue chairs.
We also need a pale blue (or red) carpet to run down the centre of the ground floor (thus concealing our seam) and probably elsewhere too. I've never made a carpet texture before. I'd quite like it to be a bit worn. I will begin some research.
