CDB Production Solution School Show Lighting and Sound

School Shows

The end of the school year is always busy for us, as we work with many schools and colleges supplying our services for their summer school shows and performances.  This year was no exception as we started out providing radio mic hire, sound system and our start cloth backdrop to a local primary school shows of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

We also had a production of le Miserables, which we provided sound, lighting and special effects equipment on a dry hire basis.  This included multiple radio mic channels, various lighting fixtures and control, smoke, haze and pyrotechnic systems.  We were also brought in on one of the performances to facilitate a DVD of the school shows which would be available to the cast, family and friends.

Meantime we also had full technical and production responsibility for The Sound of Music.  This was the first time we had worked with is college, for their school shows and the standard of the production was first class.  We provided all equipment for the production including lighting, sound and visual effect engineers which meant that the teaching staff could really focus on the acting and school orchestra. It was a very well received by audiences and we very much look forward to working with the college on their future school shows.

If you are planning your school shows and require any assistance, please get in touch via our contact us form, or if you would prefer to speak to someone in person give our office a call on 01325 520357.  We are always on hand to provide information and guidance.

This month have again been working with the Sedgefield Players, who staged their spring show “Entertaining Angel’s”.  The Sedgefield Players are a community based amateur dramatics group who do have their own sound and lighting teams but we were asked to assist with the shows technical requirements and provide additional lighting hire.  The show had a run of great performance from the cast, with a fantastic set and stage crew to go along with them.

charity ball room lighting and sound hire

Charity Ball – Room Lighting & Sound Hire

March 7th was the annual Charity Event for HCPT Group 25. Each year we provide their production so their night runs smoothly and raises money for their trip to Lourdes.

This year was no different, with the night needing full room lighting setup and sound for the band. We installed room lighting in 2 rooms, the main hall at Headlam Hall Hotel and in the Lounge are for the choir who were performing. All LED fixtures meaning we could make the room look amazing, whilst keeping it tidy. The colour this year was Gold, but once the band started we had full control of the room lighting to colour the room anything we wanted.

The band, The Jailbirds travelled from Manchester to play. They required a full PA with 3 vocals and back line. We supplied and ran it all for them, the room posed some issues but we overcame it and it could not have gone better! Over £2000 raised on the night.

The night finished with us providing our Mobile Disco services, rounding the night off!
