The exact need for the technical staff in a venue can be determined separately and in accordance to the size of the stage the number of the performances and the characteristics of the venue.

  • Set up time: 1 hour.



  • Speech and music (instruments, vocals) are usually amplified, but in a small venue a PA system is not necessarily needed.
  • Sound enhancement for the two actors with lavalier microphones
  • One guitar amplifier (group’s own) and dynamic instrumental microphone.
  • The group has their own microphones, but would like to use the venue’s microphones when possible.

Technical execution during the performance:

  • The group’s own technician prefers to execute both the sound and the lighting, when possible. For this reason, he prefers to have both the mixing table and the light boards next to eachother.
