PROPS, SETS & THEMING TO SET THE PRODUCTION ATMOSPHERE
A prop is a general term for a piece of theatrical property that will be used by a cast member in an entertainment production. Props may range the gamut from furnishings to kitchen & bath items, medical equipment, toys, musical instruments, flowers, food, etc. While many props can be purchased or rented, some items, like animatronics, puppets, models & miniatures will have to be designed and fabricated by prop makers. Once a set or event is dressed with the proper props, theming can take the production to the next atmospheric level by decorating to reflect a specific theme or corporate brand.
