Amphitheatre Technical Policy

If the show is a “walk-in” (podium type events where nothing is hung or moved and basic “as-is” lighting is used) or if the Lessee provides a full stage and running crew, there will be the need for only one technician on site.

Events needing special lighting or audio set-ups, hanging of drops, moving of the soft goods (i.e. curtains, legs, etc.) will need additional technicians.

Only authorized technicians will operate lights, sound, rigging or stage equipment in the theater. The use of any apparatus to fly, hang, rig, etc. a performer must be pre-approved by management and the technical director.
