Pant & Skirt Hangers
As our costume collection is growing and expanding, we are finding that plastic hangers and binder clips aren't cutting it anymore as a substitution for pant & skirt hangers. Since nearly all of our actors end up wearing pants or a skirt at some point during their shows, hangers that are specially designed to hang up these costume pieces are a necessity.
A MUST HAVE for every theater company. Some say that Duct Tape is the go-to fix for everything. They are wrong. Gaffers tape is sometimes what literally holds set pieces together, keeps dangerous wires down, and makes quick costume fixes a breeze. Please help feed our addiction to various tapes with this staple tape.
GAFFERS TAPE GUN
If gaffers tape is literally the thing that holds a show together, this gaffers tape gun is what holds the thing that holds the show together - a very important job. This item will make the application of gaffers tape go quickly and smoothly, so we can put tape on even MORE things.
If you thought our tape obsession was bad, you should see our pen collection. Paraphrase Productions should be hired as the official Pilot G-2 Pen series spokes-company. Whether it's for filling out forms, blocking scenes, taking notes for the cast, or anything for that matter, Pilot G-2 Pens are the lifeforce behind Paraphrase Productions.
When Winson Churchhill was asked to what he attributed his success in life he responded with the following:
"Economy of effort. Never stand up when you can sit down, and never sit down when you can lie down."
How, then, can Paraphrase Productions ever succeed without the abilty to sit? What will become of this growing theater company with no means to "economize their effort"?
As we grow and grow and grow, Paraphrase Productions will be in need of more and more folding tables. This item is necessary for not only a flat surface but also for prop storage, meetings, art projects, and sometimes set pieces. This folding table will serve as the firm foundation upon which greatness is built.
It's in the name. Safety pins have been saving Paraphase from nip slips, costume malfunctions, and other such scandals since 2015. Please, help Paraphrase continue its streak of modest, SAFE theater.
INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH GLUE GUN
Have you ever wondered what keeps Paraphrase cast and crew members so close? Some say it's love and friendship. Some say it's the safe space that Paraphrase cultivates. The honest truth? INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH GLUE GUNS
Although that is not actually the case for cast bonding, it most certainly is the case for bonding costume pieces, props, and set pieces.
Forearm Forklift Moving Cradle
In the past, Paraphrase Productions has not been a friend to the common back. With the constant wear and tear employees, crew, and cast members are expected to go through, we have seen a number of backs thrown out.
Paraphrase Productions is willing to end this feud once and for all. But this peace treaty between Paraphrase and the back cannot be made possible without your support. Please. Promote peace. Not war.
Commercial Grade Clothing Rack
Have you ever seen a show by Paraphrase Productions? If so, you've probably noticed how beautiful our costumes are. But here's the thing about costumes: they need to be put somewhere.
The reason we are looking at these commerical grade clothing racks, specifically, is becauase costumers tend to be smaller than the racks they work on. We don't want to have a cheap rack that falls and kills a costumer. Yes, they sign a waiver... but please... there are lives to save!
Without power strips, Paraphrase won't have enough electrical outlets to power the rehearsal space. We will have to resort to alternate means of energy production, such as putting an actor on a power-generating stationary bike and making them pedal through rehearsal. Since we would prefer all of our actors to be rehearsing during rehearsal time, please consider purchasing a power strip or two to prevent this arrangement from ever needing to happen.
