Since we are reusing the same basic set from the previous show (with a fresh coat of paint and a few key modifications), we are using a very similar lighting package. As usual, we've rented a 12 channel dimmer pack from the helpful folks at Tipton Sound & Lighting. This gives us the ability to run all 18 lights and follow spots.
There are seven white spots front of stage, two cool floods on stage right, two warm floods on stage left, house lights and five special effect lights. As you can tell from the photo, it's a box stage tucked on the side of a gymnasium with limited technical resources. With limited light sources, finding an even balance of light with enough left over for special effects is always a challenge.

The show is a murder mystery and a dinner theater, but you can still come this weekend and purchase bleacher seats. Without giving away any spoilers, there are a couple special lighting effects, including a thunderstorm! See if you can figure out who the culprit is! Ticket information.
