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.
