• BlueParrot -  Equipment Hire & Event Production

Theatre

 

Theatre is where it all began for Blue Parrot. Many of us have very strong theatrical backgrounds, our creative flair serves us well when producing events too. We offer lighting & sound design, programming and operation as well as all stage management services from Production Manager through to ASM's.

As well as supplying to theatres nationwide from our extensive hire stock we also provide services to theatre, and many of us continue to work as theatre practitioners on a weekly basis. Our main areas of expertise are Lighting Design, Sound Design and Video Integration, but we also provide Stage Management and Set Design.

Lighting Design - Our lighting designers have experience working on shows of all types and sizes, ranging from intimate studio plays to large scale musicals in 3000 seat regional theatres, as well as site specific work. To be a good designer you need to have a great understanding of the tools of your trade - working in a busy hire house certainly helps with that!

As well as designers we can provide lighting programmers for your production. We currently have expert programmers on the ETC Eos family of consoles as well as anything Avolites.

Even if it's just a friendly lighting technician you're after, Blue Parrot are happy to help.

WYSIWYG - We always have the latest version of this industry standard visualisation software and offer our WYSIWYG suite for hire. Contact us for further information.

Sound Design – When it comes to a theatre production one of the most important and most criticised technical aspects is the sound design. Blue Parrot has a highly skilled team of sound engineers and designers to give your ears the best experience possible, creating the perfect balance between the musicians in the pit and the actors on stage. Our designers will work closely with the creative team creating sound effects, atmospheres, sonic textures and filmic ambiances. We will choose the correct number of speakers and microphones within your budget to make sure that every single person in the theatre hears the same, whether that be the person right in front of a speaker or the person at the very back of the auditorium.

Stage Management - We have skilled Production Managers, Stage Managers, DSMs and ASMs on our books, with plenty of experience in residential and touring theatre alike. We also offer free use of our offices for production work when you have one of our team on board.
