Beauty and the Beast Jr.

The Performing Arts Academy

     For this play I served as the lighting designer and master electrican. I lacked an assistant lighting designer, so all documentation was produced by myself. I cued the production as the lighting designer on an ETC Nomad. I also designed and engineered the two practicals used in the production.

     Working in this smaller converted space with a limited number of fixtures makes designing more challenging. The space uses portable dimmer packs as their means for controlling conventional fixtures.

     The musical was fairly straight forward. The lighting design was mostly used to aid the overall atmosphere of the production. More moments of selective focus were used for moments of grace and beauty, while the rest of the stage was washed in color aiding the overall mood of the number. Some textures were used as primary means to establish setting in the forest, as well as set time of day.

     The lighting rig consisted of 6 LED fixtures and 28 conventional fixtures. The show consisted of 95 cues.

     Below the show photos are the lighting plot (PDF) and supporting paperwork (PDF).
