If you've ever been to a local production, especially a musical (and I'd like to assume you are all out there supporting the arts???), you might notice sound issues. At Civic, much of that had to do with our sound booth being located behind a wall above the audience. This summer, we updated said sound booth and are ready to kick off the next season in style and with great sound!
When it Comes to Theatre Sound is King
Sound Engineers Rejoice!
Chris Wooley, who runs sound on many of Civic’s Main Stage musicals, is overjoyed that Civic gets a new sound booth. We’re certain you have been to a show on the Main Stage at Spokane Civic Theatre where the band is louder than the on stage cast. So is the life of a theatre. Sometimes. But not always. Why? It can be hard for a sound tech to hear what the audience hears when they are literally stuck behind a wall in a booth behind and above the audience. What they hear must pass through a single grouping of windows. It’s not very efficient and the audience can tell, can’t we? Well, that’s about to change!
