For months, senior Ian Tully studied the literary and theatrical elements of “Richard III,” and felt strongly about accurately representing the world of the show through its design. He also wanted to gain as much familiarity with the characters as possible in order to prepare for an acting role. Tully, who plays the titular role of Richard and is also involved in the scenic design, has been studying the show since the summer. After it was announced that “Richard III” would be the mainstage production, Tully approached Craig Choma, who is in charge of Theatrical Design, about assisting him and director Liz Carlin-Metz with the scenic design.
