furchester hotel - live!
A live mini show, themed around a visit to the Furchester Hotel, who are awaiting the arrival of rock star, Chick Swagger!
Working closely with BBC Worldwide and the Alton Towers Team, we developed:
- Showbuilding exterior to suit the new IP, incorporating details established on screen and plenty of dry parking for buggies
- Interior set based on the set for the series, but with significant modification to turn this into a repeatable live experience
- Showspace with allowance for a hidden puppet pit behind the desk, sunk into the foundations of the building, and backstage puppet storage areas
- Hi-res screens to incorporate Cookie Monster and Elmo, who could not appear live
- Audience participation throughout the performance
- Lighting and a mini set change that transforms the space into a disco for the end of the show
