"Who may be one of the unsung heroes of the show is the scenic and lighting designer, Joshua Mullady. Using pallets, platforms, burlap, artificial foliage and cargo netting, most of which Mullady said was readily available at the school, he created a utilitarian space that became magical when the lighting was employed. There were no set changes needed; the lighting did it all."-Annalisa Swerczek-Broadway World Omaha
