CENTER PLAYERS COMMUNITY THEATRE
December is a busy time at Center Players Community Theatre. The local city of Madison has always loved Christmas, and Center Players is careful to choose a winter production that focuses on the holiday. For 2017 they chose to put on two one-act plays--The Gift of the Magi and A Fairy Tale Christmas Carol. I was excited to design this poster! However, fitting all of the information and imagery for two shows on one poster seemed like a tall order...
After many sketches, arranging all of the information around a pair of stockings seemed like the best solution to fit two shows. With the directors' blessing to do what I wished with the design, I decided to try a different style. Given that both shows are technically referring to stories from the early 1900's, I opted for a paper cut out style. Also considering the target audience (families and children), I hand drew the main elements in an almost too cute style.
