Arrangements for augmentation of existing sound and lighting system can be made not to exceed a level to be set by Centrum director and by the agreement of FACE Technical Director, Corey Frederick 281/583-7414.
House Lighting is a general stage wash with capabilities of adding up to a maximum of 4 Super Trooper Spots. Augmentation is limited to addition of colored gels for cove lighting, moveable spots and other equipment that can be reasonably accomplished within agreed budget and through existing power sources. House Stage power and lighting configuration will not accommodate complex lighting design.
Venue is a very beautiful concert stage setting with no curtains or scrims, oak flooring and four tiers of built-in orchestral-width risers.
Marley flooring can be brought in for acts involving dance. Riser width can be expanded with staging. Staging can brought in at additional charge to extend the front depth of the stage by 6'.
Sound is beautifully live, natural acoustic setting with minimum amplification required. Modest level stage monitoring produces excellent results. High level stage monitoring is detrimental to proper showcasing of performers.
