Shelf life of props an ongoing theater debate

A few years ago, Dave Morgan got a call from someone asking if he'd be interested in an assortment of oversize fake fruits and veggies. "I said, 'Of course.' Why wouldn't I?" said Morgan, artistic coordinator for Magik Theatre in San Antonio. He was pretty sure he'd find a use for it. And he was right. An enormous strawberry and a giant banana both factored into Morgan's elaborate set for last fall's staging of "Willy Wonka." The giant carrot, however, has yet to strut and fret its hour upon the stage. That's show biz. Live theater — which, in San Antonio, includes Magik, Overtime Theater, The Playhouse San Antonio and Sheldon Vexler Theatre, among others — frequently requires all sorts of odd and everyday items to make shows come to life. So theater companies' storage areas tend to be bursting at the seams with all sorts of stuff.
