Chauvet shines on Musicality4

Musicality4 is a musical review of the latest West End and Broadway musicals

1 May 2012

UK - Ariel Company Theatre's production of Musicality4 made its debut on the stage of the Chequer Mead Theatre in East Grinstead, Sussex, using eight Q-Spot 560-LED moving heads and a Hurricane Haze 2D haze machine.

Chequer Mead Theatre, a 320-seat performance venue, frequently hosts Ariel Company Theatre's productions. Joshua Attwood, lighting designer for Musicality4, placed two Q-Spot 560-LED fixtures at the front of the house, two on the balcony bars and four on the upstage bar to highlight performers, provide backlighting and project effects during the production. The addition of Hurricane Haze 2D enhanced the lighting effects by highlighting beams.

Musicality4 is a musical review of the latest West End and Broadway musicals performed by a cast of 28 adult and 28 junior actors. Neil Hopson, artistic and drama academy director at Ariel Company Theatre, envisioned a musical review of modern shows with an up-do-date image and feel.

"I wanted a production with a rock 'n' roll light show that still allowed the nuance of a musical show," Hopson said. "I needed lights with movement, effects and the ability to add bright backlighting to the soloists. The fixtures we chose are lightweight, bright and have very good effects for musical productions."
