    Lighting system shutting off randomly.

    Additionally, you would be correct in thinking our facility/equipment would be nice considering its age, but our district took way too many shortcuts and made to many design flaws. I go to school in New York and they designed the building with butterfly roofs. They fixed the leaks, but we went...

    Lighting system shutting off randomly.

    Well, I said in my first post that my school uses a Lehigh Millennium console. And the last point you made is actually what I think the issue was caused by. Since it's a windows based console, you have to go through a certain shut down procedure. It only takes a couple of clicks 1. Find "File"...

    Hey, I thought we could share pictures of our shows...

    I know they're not exactly pictures, so I hope that doesn't disqualify me from this thread, but here are a couple of links to a show I just did on Friday. Sachem East Broadway Night 2012: "21 Guns"- American Idiot - YouTube Sachem East; Broadway Night 2012, Cell block tango - YouTube It was...

    Lighting system shutting off randomly.

    You guys should probably know that I'm 17, a junior in high school, and know absolutely NOTHING about electricity other than the basics I've learned in an AP Physics class. I can tell you what a voltage source and resistor look like on a circuit diagram, that's about it! It actually makes me...

    Lighting system shutting off randomly.

    Last Night my high school had it's annual Broadway Night production (an end of the year show where we perform different numbers from shows and do skits and what not) and in addition to performing, I had the pleasure of throwing together a last minute lighting design. The entire cast stayed after...

    High school plays - what shows are you doing and have you done?

    I've done the Drowsy Chaperone, Sweet Charity, Bus Stop, Voices From The High School (Awful show), and Happily Ever, Once Upon (Also not so great). This March we're doing Cats. I'm not very knowledgeable on what's overdone, but I love Don't Drink the Water by Woody Allen, which my school did...

    Hey, I thought we could share pictures of our shows...

    This is a show that I'm working on as a student LD that runs this weekend. And apparently adding the student before LD implies that I'm still only assistant to our crew adviser :/ But anyway, the show is called "Voices From the High School," and it's basically a series of skits that each...

    Curtain call for crew?

    I was really torn on what to vote for this. I voted no, for the sake of professionalism. But I think it really all depends on what level the show is at. When I was in middle school, the director always made sure that the crew came out for a bow, and I thought that was fitting. But in high...

    Controlling Booth Traffic

    Fortunately, the entrance to the lighting booth at my high school is on a different floor than the auditorium entrance. It's also located inside a hallway that's considered a restricted area for students. So you either have to use the service elevator which requires a key, or you have to go...

    Booth Pictures :)

    You guys make it sound like having too much space is a bad thing! I would kill to have enough space in my booth to put furniture in!

    Crew music

    This year, one of our stage managers made a set of stage crew CD's. It was pretty much a balance of classic rock and showtunes. Other than that, our set designer/adviser sets his stereo up everyday and we either listen to a rock station on the radio, or he'll play cast recording of various...

    number of dimmers and channel capacity of high schools

    Probably really late to post this, but I believe my school has 146. 1 through 24 are to locations in the catwalk, 25 through 40 are to side beams in the house, 41 through 100 are to 3 borders above the stage, 101 to 112 control wall boxes located backstage, and 113 to 124 are for the Cyc. The...

    Hey everyone, my name is Ryan and I'm a high school student from Long Island. I'm mainly on the other side of the production as an actor, but lately I've been learning a lot about lighting design, and I'm hoping to take over that position at my school next year. I came across this site a few...
