Trailer for the London West End production

Automated Scenery (London)

Lighting (London)

Lighting control used a GrandMA console, with a Hippotizer media server running video.
Moving lights are predominantly Vari*Lites.


A Soundcraft-Studer Vista 5SR sound desk is used front-of-house (at the rear of the stalls).

Video Wall

A (relatively) small video wall is used upstage of the cyclorama to achieve sun and moon effects. The video wall is rigged from a pair of automated trusses which can track it horizonally and vertically to allow the sun / moon to rise & set to trigger Princess Fiona to transform into her night-time ogre.


Design: Sets & Lighting for the Broadway Production

(The London production and tour is missing many of these elements)

The automated floor on Broadway was built by PRG (more information)
