    He have 10 metre fly tower above the stage

    i don't know how many dimmers we have but we have four onstage lighting bars (on the fly system)
    two out front

    we have a lot of lights
    something like 100 dimmers i don't really know but they are split up into foh patch and on stage

    we have a capcity of 500 i think
    this is what the school thing says on wikipedia
    "The annual Carey Musical Theatre Company production is a highlight on the School calendar for performers, musicians, backstage and technical crews and audiences. The middle school also has an annual musical involving more than 100 students on, behind and under the stage. The drama department produces a senior school play in second semester including Cyrano de Bergerac, Cloudestreet & Much Ado About Nothing in the past few years. The school hires out costumes from more than 50 shows it has produced in the last 20 years to other school and amateur companies.

    The Memorial Great Hall at the Kew campus is a fully equipped theatre with seating for an audience of 700, and a flytower for sets."

    we have a full can system throughout the place
    and sound setup in a rack 16channel mackie desk
    and our lighting desk is a axiom 36

    edit* we have 72 dimmers, 6 dimmer racks

    Welcome! I work in a high school auditorium, so for me it is very exciting to see new students getting involved in productions that are in the spaces they go to school. So, make sure you ask questions, answer questions. It is important that you contribute not only at school but here!

    You wouldn't recognise a joke if it danced naked in front of you wearing nothing but a tutu!

    Your perception is amazing, len. You are correct, it wasn't naked, as above, the joke was wearing a tutu!
