Matilda Magic Props
Designed and created by Steven Abusch Costume Design by Jill Abusch The Play Group Theatre, May, 2019
The Play Group Theatre's MATILDA chalkboard prop looks like a regular chalkboard, can be written on with chalk - but most importantly allows for magic chalk that "writes" the warning to Agatha Trunchbull at the end of the musical. Operated by tech crew or actors behind the prop, the chalkboard magic combines two effects - real looking 'chalk' that moves across the chalkboard at will and lettering that remains virtually invisible until revealed to your audience in concert with the chalk effect. Add a chalk writing sound effect and make the astonishing effect even more magical! See it in action: video >>
The easy to operate cake prop disappears in sections right into its own platter/table. Add frosting to the top of the cake preshow and it looks downright delicious. See it in action: video >>
The magic cup prop tips, rotates on end and tips over at will. It can be installed in any prop table/cart with a 3/4" plywood top. (requires cutting a custom hole in the table top) See it in action: video >>
These essential magic props make MATILDA, the musical easy to produce for any school or theatre.
