The first CADAC desk for live theatre was in 1984, for Martin Levan on Little Shop of Horrors.
This was the start of Cadac dominating the theatre market with nearly 70% of theatre shows using Cadac desks. Performances included: Billy Elliot, We Will Rock You, Hairspray, Jersey Boys, Lion King, and Wicked and on Broadway: 13, Avenue Q, Chicago, Guys and Dolls, Gypsy, Hairspray, Jersey Boys, Lion King, Mary Poppins, Pal Joey, South Pacific and Wicked. The longest continually serving Cadac console in London was on Phantom of the Opera where it was used from 1984 until 2008, providing 24 years continuous service!
