is the -fountain which actually flows.
A hose is used to carry water to the
stage and it drops three levels of the
fountain to the tiny base. The stat-
ue at the top of the fountain is plas-
ter and the rest of it is of wood cov-
ered with canvas. The diameter of
the base is about seven feet and the
tin flooring holds the water. The
musical effect furnished by an organ
which plays while the fountain runs
is heightened by the sound of water
falling on the tin bottom.
Ballroom Setting
The last scene of the operetta is
a ballroom and because of the added
space required by the hoop skirts of
the chorus, the setting was extended
to the back wall. Usually the sets
do not have to be this deep.
The construction of the three
scenes in "Naughty Marietta" re-
quired about a week's extra work in
comparison to those of the other
shows.
