HKIS HS Tech support 

HKIS HS drama department head contacted me to ask for pro audio contacts. I respect the contact but reacted with a want to get the HS theatre tech team trained to deal with it. So, I offered my help to get the students up to scratch with controlling loads of wireless microphones for a musical Bye Bye Birdie.FullSizeRender 2.jpgA lot of the HS tech student’s were ex-MS Tech-Know-Wise crew members. Rising to the High School experienced with theatre tech control (Sound, Light, Projection, Communication). Thus the team just needed a little focusing and reminding. Detail, creativity and quality being key.FullSizeRender.jpgThrough rehearsals the normal thoughts of ‘oh dear, show dates are looming’ ‘you must be joking’ reran…

As I write this the show has conpleted and the team have done a fantastic job. I had total faith in their ability to deal with it and with a little encouragement they did. The systems used: Shure ULX and DLX wireless mic receivers, Countryman and Shure face mic’s and transmitters. Make 24 & 16 input mixers, Yamaha SPX 990 sex Tascam headphone DA. Clearcom communication system. The HKIS HS theatre PA was used for FOH amplification. JBL Eon were used for stage foldback. FullSizeRender 4.jpg

I’m proud for agreeing to support this project and once again have my belief that the kids can do it reformed. Thanks HKIS Tech team you rock. Nice one .
