Its another busy week as I return from London following rehearsals and right into assisting our team with the preparation of equipment for next weeks opening of Seussical The Musical. The show plays for a week in the UK before heading off to Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Singapore. We have been busy getting equipment ready to truck to the UK dates but also looking at radio mics sound consoles and redundant Q lab systems touring with the show overseas. This means air freighting them after the UK leg right over to Abu Dhabi. Singapore will be sourcing almost of the kit our show needs locally so I have been working with their sound department to ensure the Digico consoles are all running the latest software so all our programming will work without a hitch out there.
If you want to catch the show we open in Sunny Bridlington next Thursday through Sunday before heading overseas.
Thanks to Danny Claire at dBS Solutions and Rob Parkinson the shows no1 sound operator for their help this week.
A few weeks back I had the absolute pleasure of designing the audio for a one night concert with Willemijn at the Ambassadors Theatre London. The Sold out event produced by Paul Taylor Mills took place over the top of the resident production Stomp.. Our load in and set up time was limited but all of the in house team where great and myself, production engineer Matt Chisholm and console operator Andy Waddell had things together in no time. The Band Led fantastically by Musical director Tom Deering make our task great fun. Willemijn and our two guest vocalists James Fox and Victoria Hamilton-Barritt were all lovely. The show went very well with audiences delighted by numbers from We Will Rock You, Tarzan and of course Wicked.
Big thanks goes to Paul, Kylie and all at PTM,Keiran Fitzpatrick and the house team at The Ambassadors, & my team Matt and Andy for their hard work especially the load in!
Heres a little review of the evening from our friends West Ends Wilma.
