I am directing Beauty and the Beast, Jr. and we were planning on using fog machines to do the transformation scene, but were informed that we were not allowed due to fire codes. So, we are back to square one. We were going to go with a blackout and a spotlight on Belle reacting to the Beast- but we need to get the prince on stage. Any suggestions?? The only other idea I found online was to use blinders to shock the audience. While this is a great idea, I am not sure how many we would need, etc.
