Not only does the Shadow know what evil lurks in the heart of men – it knows how many more weeks of winter there will be, if you ask Punxsutawney Phil!
This Sunday, February 2 we celebrate Groundhog’s Day and wait to see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow. As tradition would have it, if a groundhog sees his shadow, he will be scared by it, return to his burrow and six more weeks of winter will follow! If he doesn’t, then spring will soon be arriving.
Shadows really aren’t scary at all, so don’t be afraid of using them in your lighting. In fact, shadows are very important, and at times, more important than light! Check out our Stage Lighting Store Textbook section on Shadows to learn what your shadows are telling you and the audience!
