Custom Printed Floor for “The Gingerbread Man”
Client: Derby Theatre
Installed Product: Custom Printed Floor
With over 50 performances at Derby Theatre and dates in venues across the UK, ‘The Gingerbread Man’ (a Derby Theatre & Hiccup Theatre production) was in need of a durable and portable, custom printed floor, capable of touring the country with the rest of the set.
Looking to replicate the iconic bakery style brick floor, Derby Theatre’s Head of Production, Phil Bentley and Designer Sam Wilde worked with Le Mark to produce the design onto Le Mark’s Harmony™ Dance Floor.
“I have been using Le Mark products for over 6 years and trust the personnel, the product and the quality that comes from Le Mark” said Phil.
The custom print dance floor, is to be used for the theatre’s Christmas production of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ where the show will undertake over 50 performances at Derby Theatre between the 5th and 31st of December and then embark on a UK tour from February 2018.
Derby Theatre is a producing theatre, reimagining what a regional producing theatre can be. Through Derby Theatre’s unique relationship with the University of Derby, the theatre has placed learning, mentoring and artistic excellence as its heart, bringing together creative professionals with diverse audiences, to tell compelling stories.
