Sound:

2 x Sennheiser SKM500 wireless microphones

4 x EV Speakers

Behringer X32 Mixing Desk

Yamaha Amp


Special Effects:

→ The play begins with an explosion where ‘James Blond’ emerges and makes his way to the stage. We achieved the effect of an explosion by setting off a confetti cannon while flashing a profile directed at the doorway. Since we didn’t have cans, we had to setup a cue light using birdies so that the lighting operator could cue the pyro operator at the right time.

Autumn Concert

Standard

Location: Reed’s School

Role: Stagehand


Information:

→ During the day of rehearsals, I drew rough stage plans and took pictures of the chairs and music stands for each act. This meant that when it came to the performance in the evening, we could refer to the plans and photos to set the stage for each act accurately.


Sound:

→ We used two shotgun microphones rigged above the choir to send a signal into the main PA to boost the volume of the singers.


Stage:

→ I directed a small team of 5 stagehands to take on and remove chairs and music stands as efficiently as possible.


Lighting:

→ We used 8 fresnels with straw gels to create a general wash covering the stage. We also used a spotlight profile to light the composer.
