Princethorpe's Jewel in the Crown


Central Theatre Supplies had a very busy summer

working at Princethorpe College @princethorpecol  

converting the old theatre into a state of the art performance space.


 
The technical side of the 100 seater theatre was designed by Jo Beaumont-Ward and consists of a complete LED rig over 5 lighting bars, using the ETC ColorSource Range of lanterns and ColorSource Control 40 Lighting Console ( more details ) and Martin Rush MH1.

 
The sound is controlled by the Allen and Heath QU-32 mixer (more details ) with Electrovoice speakers (more details) using Audio Technica UHF 3000 wireless microphones (more details )

















 
Back stage there are the GDS Blue Light system (more details) for actors and crew and the Granite Technical Communications System with back stage speakers


.

 
 

 

Always looking to future proof the system there is additional wiring for cameras and video streaming and an infra-red hearing system and backstage monitors.

The first production ‘Kinder Transport’ is in 5 weeks. 

We would like to thank all our engineers for their hard work over the summer without them these jobs would not have been possible.
