Points Richard at the first post of this topic, and the 'rules' to be observed...
I had a great business plan ... I was going to build bungalows for Snow White's seven dwarfs...
However, there was just one tiny flaw .............

Since it's actually several different shows (rather than a pile of different shots of one production) I think we can let the "only 3 pictures" rule go this time, otherwise just feel free to move a couple of them to a new post.

The orchestra were put in the music classroom next to the theatre and piped back over a Roland CAT5 multi, with video and audio links in both directions.
Set design by me, lighting design was a co-op between me and a student LD. I designed the rig, but she did most of the plotting and had a lot of input to the final look of the show.
The run crew was all students except for me on followspot. Run as a pro show would be with SM, DSM, ASMs, dressers etc. I have to say the students really stepped up to the challenge and excelled through a long hard week.
14 650W Fresnels
11 650W Profiles
8 LED PARs - meant to be 4 Chauvet Tri Tours but we had a stock issue at the supplier - the only hired LX
2 MAC 600s - they live in the rig and got used for the occasional special
2 Robert Juliat Buxie followspots
2 Nocturne floods - houselights
A load of litedeck
A load of hardboard
A staircase built by me - I managed carpentry!
8 Nazi Flags
24 Solenoid drops from BR's own Tom Howard (3 on each flag, one to unroll, 2 to drop it out) driven over DMX
1 large projection screen - due to budget this was made of 3x1, 12mm mdf and cheap white paint
1 clapped out old school laptop running screen monkey
1 Sanyo XP57 - our house projector
A pile of nice mics on the orchestra
12 ways of G3 300 with CPC headsets
4 PZMs - mainly for backstage/orchestra feed
Roland digital multi
01V96 - orchestra submix
A&H Zed 428 - final mix

Just a couple from reheasals (on my phone cam)- the bottom pic is from Trojan women. We had a load of new Chauvet LED kit and an OrbXF delivered only 1.5 wks before the FMP's. Made for a tight schedule with very little time for 'proper' photos of the final performance.

This was the first year of our school music festival 'AfricAid Festival'.
I organised the event, with PA and staging from the brilliant HPSS in Hull. PA spec was L'Acoustic dV-DOSC, dV-SUB and SB218 with Avid Profile on FOH and a Midas Pro 2 on monitors.

Don't change your mind; You're wasting light.

Killer Queen, tracked by three movers as she walks downstage, got the timing perfect every night.
Rehearsal aka "let get the cast to clap in time with the video" (the battens at the side were moved a bit, actually the LX changed quite a bit after this point, spot the lighting desk in the foreground )
This wasn't part of the show (so cheating slightly)... However on the final night the cast all ended up dancing on stage, dragging some of the crew with them (spot the director in the WWRY London TShirt ) and singing We are the Champions - it's this moment that reminds me why I agreed to spend a week in the middle of nowhere, with lots of kit for very little financial reward, the pupils (and staff) loved it... and it really was a great experience and completely unlike anything this small rural school had done before - great fun
p.s. The person on the desk ended up putting lots to full and leaving to join this chaos, the 'lots to full' included the hazer which I eventually turned down a bit before the entire venue disappeared into the mist
