Headsets: Headsets are available in the booth at the back of the house, off stage left, off stage right, and spotlight cove.
Booth location: Just behind the main seating area of the house. This is an open area, so your student(s) will need to call cues quietly, please. One person can easily call both light and sound cues.
Piano/Orchestra Set-up: No piano is available for use. Recommended placement of keyboard/orchestra accompaniment is on the DSR or DSL corners of the stage. These areas are not lit, but they are within easy sightline of the stage. There are floor pockets available with power outlets on these corners.
Sound: Sound cues should be brought on a cd. We can play cues from an MP3 player as well, if you need to, but it is suggested than you have a cd as a backup if you choose this. Due to the size of the stage and the audience seating area, the stage will have area microphones. The levels will be set for the entire festival, and will not be changed. If you like, we can turn of the mics for your performance.There will be a handheld mic available for your use, please email host if you plan to use it.
Lighting: No cyc is available. One spotlight available in the balcony. The spotlight has a long throw, and is dimmer than the main lights from the catwalk. Color gels in the spotlight are not available. Please note that our light board is a preset board, and will be run manually by submasters. Your show will NOT be programmed into the board, each lighting cue will be manually operated. Please keep this in mind when designing your cues. While our board op will be as fast and accurate as possible with these cues, the simpler the better.
Reminder: see the Rules and Preparation page for the Program Page template and Image Release Forms.
You will find several restaurants in close proximity to Pinecrest HS. Snacks and water will be sold onsite.
For those wishing to pack lunches or schedule deliveries, there will be some space to eat meals outside (weather permitting).
