Ideas for stairway group photo?

I've never had much luck at stairway photos but this is what the client wants so I'm looking for ideas.

Here are my scouting photos of the stairways. Both taken today at about the same time as the scheduled shoot. Group of 8, um, mature singers dressed in colorful patriotic costumes.

#1 Main entrance stairway. Can't more to left without going outside, move to right and there's an ugly banner hanging in the window. I imagine we can move the plant and plexiglas sign.

#2 stairway across from library, similar in design/layout to #1. Of course we'll move the trashcan and maybe bench too. Bright window on left shines light (L to R) onto the stairs.

Anybody got anything? Unfortunately the shoot is tomorrow @2:45pm. 15 minute time window and that's probably optimistic.

I'll bring A77ii, A99ii, 24-70mm f/2.8 & 70-200mm f/2.8 (equiv).

Maybe something like:
