Technical Requirements

  • Minimum space 5m x 5m with a height of 3m. We have some flexibility if your space is smaller but would need to discuss this with you. We are happy if the stage is larger.
  • Flat, clean space preferably with a wooden floor covered in a black dance floor (grey will suffice). The space needs to be able to have a blackout.
  • Under no circumstances can the floor be slippery (i.e. heavily varnished, parquet, polished etc) the show cannot be performed on a slippery floor.
  • Good quality sound system. There must be speakers or monitors on stage. We need a mini disc player with auto pause & a C.D player preferably with auto pause.
  • We require parking for a transit size van & possibly a car.
  • Space needs to be well ventilated and with adequate heating.
  • Black backs
  • Space to be pre-rigged and focused (bar the specials)
  • We require the space & a technician 2 hours before the house opens.
    If you cannot pre-rig/focused please inform the company as soon as possible to arrange earlier access to the venue.
  • We can strike the show in 60 minutes.
We travel with:
  • 1 stage manager and 1 performer
  • A flat pack set and props.
  • A smoke machine, which needs to be operated from the control position. We require a 3 pin XLR lead from down stage left to that position (a mic tie line will be fine). A 13amp supply is also needed.
  • All our equipment is PAT tested and a risk assessment is available on request.
