Show and Event Photos

Most of the photos on these pages were taken by Lisa Lees or her son, Dylan Lees, who were involved with All-of-us Express from 1996 through 2014. All photos are copyright by the photographers or by All-of-us Express. Please do not copy photos for other than personal use without permission. If you need a higher resolution copy of any photo, please contact AECT.

Show photo galleries, from Season 25

With Season 25 (2013-2014) it was decided that photos on CD had become obsolete, so we began retaining publicity photos on the website and added larger, higher resolution photos to the show dress rehearsal galleries as well.

Show photo galleries, Seasons 15–24

During 2004 the switch was gradually made to digital photography and AECT began selling Photo CDs instead of prints (though we continued to sell prints of the cast and crew photo until around 2010). From 2005 somewhat larger images were used on the website.

In addition to the above galleries of photos taken during dress rehearsals, the individual show pages from 1998-2003 contain publicity photos and art from show programs. Use the links on the production history page to access these pages.

Various Theatre activities and early show photos

Most photos from before 2004 were taken with film cameras, scanned from prints and kept small for easy viewing in the days of dial-up network access.

Footnote about digital photography

Lisa and Dylan began taking publicity photos sometime around Raggedy Ann & Andy in summer 1998 (this was at the West Saginaw location) using Nikon 35mm and Fujifilm 120 film cameras. They took over show photography (photos at dress rehearsals) with Hansel and Gretel in fall 2002 (after the move from Holt to Logan Square). The earliest show for which digital cameras were used was Clowns' Play in February 2003 (Sony Mavica; a camera that had a 3.5 inch floppy disk and shot 480x640, i.e., VGA, images). By Alice in Wonderland in summer 2003 they were using Sony P32 and V1 cameras to supplement film. For Emperor's New Clothes in fall 2003 they had their first 'real' digital camera, a Nikon D100. The first photo CD was produced for The Hobbit in spring 2003. For Tales of Hans Christian Andersen / The Frog Prince in fall 2004 they added a Nikon D70. In 2014 they were using a Nikon D5100, a Nikon D800E and a Sony RX1, plus an array of lighting equipment for publicity photos.
