If you are planning a show, please contact our technical team as early as possible so that we help your time at the Playhouse go as smoothly as possible. We can help you plan lighting states, effects, specials, gobos, radio mic requirements, video & sound recording, sound effect creation, song editing, remixing, even custom music composition for the show. Our rates for custom work are very reasonable and are tailored specifically to your show’s performance and the Playhouse venue.
