Martin MAC250 Entours turn Orange
Posted on Tuesday, April 28th, 2009
Orange Civic Theatre is a multipurpose venue located in the Central West of New South Wales. The theatre offers a diverse annual program including many local, national and international touring productions.
The 504 seat auditorium is a professional, user-friendly space with racked, continental seating plan. Outlined by a traditional proscenium arch, the stage is equipped to suit most technical requirements.
Late last year the theatre decided to purchase a few moving lights but being a regional theatre the budget wasn’t large. A good product that would last and do the job, whilst offering reasonable costing, was required.
“Previously we had always hired our moving lights from Centrestate but once the decision had been made to purchase some, I had a good look around,” commented Peter Telford, technical manager at the Civic Theatre. “The guys from Show Technology came up to demonstrate the Martin MAC250 Entours and I was very impressed.
“I really like the brightness of the Entours and the range of gobos and colours are great. Plus the back up from Show Technology is great. Really they’re a good, overall package for the price.
The Entours are used on a wide variety of events including musicals, dance school recitals, corporate events and touring productions. Also proving popular on productions are the eight Pro Shop LED Strips that were recently purchased.
“I’ve used them on all sorts of events, again whenever I can,” said Peter. “They’re so bright and versatile, great for lighting up cycs.”
