Lighting

There is a large control booth area the full width at the back of the theatre. It is isolated by glass windows, with five Anchor monitors, and has four window panels that can open.   There is also a talkback mic from the light board. The booth is 82 feet from the Grand Drape, and about 12 feet above the stage floor. We have two ETC SR48AF racks in the booth, four SR24AF racks in the AP’s, for a total of 370 dimmers available, and a DR6 for the houselights and Unison controller. Many circuits have at least 2 drop cord pigtails and many have 2 outlets on each pigtail for a total of 4 receptacles per circuit. Maximum capacity per dimmer is 2400 watts..There is a 50 amp fused single phase disconnect and a 200 amp 3 phase cam SR.

The theatre is wired with 20-amp twistlock connectors in the “Old Code” configuration with the lug on the ground blade OUT. We have some adapters to stage pin and “U-Ground or Edison” plugs, and lots of cable and twofers.
