Wizard of Oz – PA Hire
Chiddingstone Church of England School is sited in an idyllic rural location in West Kent. As an outstanding school, converted to an Academy in December 2011, the school continues to deliver outstanding education to boys and girls aged 4 –11.
EM Communications were very pleased to provide the PA system on hire for the recent end-of-term production of the Wizard of Oz, a performance by pupils and teachers enjoyed by hundreds of supporting parents.
The performance of the show took place in the sunshine and all of the principles (read child stars) of the show were provided with wireless tie-clip microphones to ensure they were heard clearly by the excited audience.
All other performers had their audio enhanced via a series of shotgun microphones and the show was controlled on a Soundcraft U16i Mixer (with iPad control interface) and played out through the impressive JBL VRX928 line-array loudspeakers, powered by Crown Xti amplifiers.
“The sound from the performance was crystal clear”, commented Ed Manwaring from EM Communications, “A number of parents commented after the performance that it was very pleasing being able to hear clearly, even the youngest performers, at the show”.
EM Communications has established an excellent reputation, over more than twenty years, providing audio-visual, lighting and event hire for Schools, Colleges and Universities in London, Kent and East Sussex borders.
