Backstage Crafts

Spark shows the magic behind the Bay Area's most ambitious stage productions -- starting with the creation of a striking new set design for the San Francisco Opera's staging of "Doktor Faust." Next is costumer extraordinaire Sandra Woodall, who has designed for a variety of genres, including ballet, modern dance, performance art and theater. We see her in action at A.C.T. and the San Francisco Ballet. Then, meet Joy Marcelle, the wig master for the Best of Broadway's production of "Hairspray."
