New Hope Academy + The Resource Exchange

New Hope Academy's drama program often uses materials found here at The Resource Exchange to build their sets... and they've done it once again in their latest production of Up the Down Staircase!

In keeping with the spirit of saving materials for creative reuse, program director David Boyd kept some items purchased from The Resource Exchange that he had used to build the sets of previous productions. The faux brick made from recycled cardboard (seen here on the Up the Down Staircase set) was originally purchased for the Academy's production of 12 Angry Jurors. The set walls were also previously purchased for their production of The Sound of Music. Both the faux brick and the set walls were saved from the set of a film by the re team. We're sure glad to see them get reused (twice!) instead of going to landfill!
