Our Time is a musical revue featuring musical theatre songs from the likes of Stephen Sondheim, Scott Alan and Dick Lee. A one-location piece set in a fictitious Malay-fusion café “Kampong Victoria” and staged in a black box theatre, this is a rather intimate production. With very little budget to produce, coupled with a very simple black box, the set was designed stylistically to create the atmosphere of a cozy café and be able to fit in a live band as well. With these in mind, I created a few “walls” out of simple flats and doorway panels, and decorated them with simple carpentry works and off-the-shelf furnishings and decorations
