As gray columns arch across the ceiling, almost consuming the front audience, Triad Stage is transformed into a magical realm. The way a world comes alive onstage is truly miraculous, and although Triad Stage has a “sorcerer” onstage this month, it was no wizard that raised the walls and brought the set to life — those details were left in the ever-capable hands of a technical team.
