white board doodle

How about this for a show?The set is made entirely of whiteboads. Performers then draw a backdrop as the scene progresses. You could also use smaller white boards and draw props on them. Heck, you could hang whiteboards around performers necks and draw costumes on them.

Or, do the same thing but with big bits of paper. What you lose in eraseability you gain in rippability.
I watched an episode of that Drew Carey Green Screen show*, which I didn’t know existed. If you like, you can think of the whiteboard show as a low tech, real time equivalent to green screen.

*I remember seeing another group doing green screen improv many years ago, though I can’t find it now.
