What is a sound and light show?
This type of sound and light show is modeled after European productions that are presented annually at the Lourve in Paris and at the Coliseum in Rome. Similar shows were presented at the United States Capitol and at Independence Hall in Philadelphia during the Bicentennial year.
What will it look like?
The main facade of the courthouse building would become the actual stage for the event and the audience would sit before the courthouse on the lawn just as the audience attends the annual Sweetcorn festival in August. See grounds setup diagram.
During the performance, dramatic and powerful lighting washes the face of the building with spectacular colors and effects. Live pantomime actors bring life scenes from history. Periodically, silhouettes appear in windows while large video screens, and other special effects are used to tell the story of the history of Marshall County and Marshalltown through vignettes, music, and beauty. The courthouse literally comes alive before the audience!
