Remote controlled flashlight?

    I would like to be able to turn a flashlight on and off with a
    wireless remote from about 20' away (or so). I figured if I get one of
    those big plastic flashlights with the 6 volt battery there should be
    room for whatever electronics are needed, but I don't know how to do
    it.
    I realize this sounds like a bit of a strange request, but it's for a
    theatrical production in which we'd like to be able to turn a
    flashlight on and off without anyone near it.
    Any thoughts on either where I could find something like this, or how
    to make something? It has to be pretty simple for me to able to do it
    (limited electronics ability and knowledge).

    yeah, there shouldbe plenty of room, you can replace ther large 6v battery
    with 4 AA cells and the remote control receiver circuit.
    start with a cheap remote-controlled toy car and replace the motor with a relay
    (wired in series with a diode if necessary)
