I'm looking for a levitation that can be incorporated into a play so a character floats up for a bit and then comes back down. This doesn't want to look like a magic trick -- no Asrahs, Agas, or flying carpets -- but more along the lines of the flying in Peter Pan, although it won't be that extensive.

Funny thing, we did Peter Pan a number of years ago, complete with three flying characters, and discovered that the cables weren't important to the audience at all. If they saw them, they saw them, and if they didn't, they didn't. They didn't look at the effect as a magic trick, but as part of a play.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any leads to published or commercial effects here. We have a full theatrical shop available, so building, welding, etc., are no problem. Thanks much.

Contact Den Dowhy at this board and buy the plans for the MPL ytou can build it in about 3 hours if you have a set up like described at your theater. Plus once you use it you'll find a thousand other ways to put it in other shows and FYI it can be used backstage to do a million things.

You should also take note of the " quick and easy" connect and disconnect of the MPL levitation. Walk to a certain spot on stage, float and then walkaway instantly....not hookup or disconnect time required. Very smooth.

Best,

Tim

Thanks.
