So I was told today to make a list of everything my high school theatre "should" have started out with. (We're a 3 year old high school and apparently already falling apart) Here's a brief overview of what we have and I'm hoping for. Any input would be great. Be gentle, this is my first year truely doing all of the technical side and I'm still learning. We've got... 3 motorized battens above stage 2 ancient spots (we got them from the other HS theatre, one is currently dead and we don't know why. The fan is on but the lamp isn't turning on. Bought a new lamp... still not working.) 4 MAC 550's Levitron Innovator 48/96 (which went kaput today... no clue why) Colortran i96 dimmer rack Approx. 25 Shakepeare 30 degree Approx. 35 Altman Par-cans (I'm not there right now and I can't remember the specs) 6 Cyc lights (single color) Clearcom system A FOH that has no catwalk or motorized batton and I have to rip out a row of seats to get the Genie to it. No access to house lights for replacement A "Shop" that is 8X14 and only has 1 electrical outlet. An equally tiny booth that isn't even elevated. No box office. Obviously I need to fix the broken things as well as figure out something to do about FOH. However, I also want a new board. I was recommended the ION as it's performing well and the ETC interface is something my kids will encounter in the future if they continue with this field. Help?
