High school theater with a budget?
That must be nice.
My daughter's HS theater dept is self-funded; ticket & concession sales.
Plus whatever donations from parents.
The couple hundred hours a year I spend there probably doesn't hurt, either.
They do 3 shows every year.
So it makes more sense:
Truss 1 and Truss 2 are hung with motors from proper points.
Truss A, B & C were perpendicular to truss 1 & 2.
Truss A, B & C were connected to Truss 1 & 2 with ratchet straps.

All cables get trickline, I don't really care which end.
If it ends up on the female end of a mic cable, I'm fully authorized to remove it for aesthetic reasons.

I need to drop a temporary batten from a pair of established rig points.
Points are rated at 1,000 each.
10' schedule 40 pipe.
There will be 3 Source4 ellipsoidals on the batten.
My initial thinking was to use a pair of (steel-core) spansets, "choked" on the batten.
The lights will be...
Thanks for the LOTO note; I had just turned off the breakers on the module before pulling them. This seems more of a personal safety note, rather than an equipment damage prevention. Which is fine, I'd just as soon stick around for a while!All the dimmer modules were dust-free.
My local high school is gearing up for their fall production.
They have a Sensor Rack, 96 channels, CEM+ module, balanced 3-phase feed, ETC 48/96 console.
On Saturday, I went down to inventory fixtures, pull gels from last year, etc.; essentially reset to zero for the fall show...
