F&D Scene Changes was pleased to host the annual Doors Open Calgary Volunteer and Sponsor Appreciation Night. It was a magical night complete with a harpist to accompany the wine and cheese soirée put on by the DOYYC team.

DOYYC’s Christine Armstrong took the opportunity to thank the volunteers and sponsors for all the hard work that went into making this years Doors Open event the most successful yet.  Afterwards, the attendees broke into small groups and were given guided tours of our main shop where they had a behind the scenes look at what it takes for F&D to be able to build the spectacular for clients in our own backyard and around the globe.

F&D Scene Changes is proud to support Doors Open Calgary and welcomes the opportunity for fellow Calgarians to get to know us.

Doors Open is a well-established and highly successful international concept that allows people free access to buildings in order to create enthusiasm for heritage and contemporary architecture, and increase the appreciation of historic and culturally significant places and spaces.

F&D as featured in the September, 2012 issue of Business in Calgary As published in the September issue of "Business in Calgary" Magazine:

Working in the Background…
Enhancing the Foreground
by Mary Savage


Tucked inside the community of Ramsay, F&D Scene Changes Ltd. quietly goes about their business and does so largely unnoticed by the general public – unless you’re a patron of the performing arts and entertainment industry.

And when you step inside their office, the walls are lined – floor to ceiling – with photographs of sets and scenery from all corners of the world: all designed and built in the F&D shop.

For three decades, their sets have graced the stages worldwide – from Broadway to Hong Kong. They have built sets for Hollywood, Disney, Cirque du soleil and dozens of museum exhibits throughout North America. Closer to home, if you’ve recently caught the Broadway shows Wicked, Mary Poppins or Les Mis, then you’ve seen their scenery.

“With our history in the entertainment industry, there isn’t very much that we haven’t been asked to build,” explains Leyton Morris, project manager.
