APAV’s theatre design team, Craig and Jack, just returned from a rocking summer season at Tuacahn Amphitheatre in St. George, Utah. They had the task to design a solid system that would firmly secure the sound team to fulfil the demanding needs of having three shows (Beauty and the Beast, Count of Monte Christo and School of Rock) running simultaneously and changing over every night using the same cast due to the theater’s repertory style. After months of wireless and input output planning, our team’s very well-planned design was able to successfully accommodate the show changeovers from show to show requiring minimal adjustments in between for the unique 16 piece orchestras, over 50 actors and 64 channels of wireless. Craig and Jack capped off the four show season with the first Regional Production of Sir Andrew Loyd Webber’s School Of Rock! The show included a six piece orchestra in the pit, a five piece children band on stage and another trio on stage!! They maxed out the Yamaha Rivage system this season using all 144 inputs, pushing the limits of the system using 64 channels of wireless, countless plug-ins and even an outboard pedalboard controlled by the Engineer. Lots of fun, great job team!
