ADlight! in Theatre

Andrew started playing with lights at the tender age of 10 and has never stopped!
All through school and university and later at Questor's Theatre in Ealing he's been lighting plays, musicals, concerts and ballets!
More recently he's been paid to enjoy himself - here are a few of the highlights and photos.

  Sweeney Todd at Questors; this Sondheim classic lit almost entirely with my LED Chroma Floods, enabled the quickly changing moods of the opera to be easily followed.

Two dramatic scenes from Questor's "Great Expectations"
Two views from the Merry Wives of Windsor for Opera South.  

Deep blue lighting comes from the latest Chroma Floods in ADLight's Hire stock.

Two views from the six hour production of Nicholas Nickleby at Questors Theatre.

This major challenge for the theatre was a great success for all who contributed.


The Winter's Tale - Two shots from a play at Questor's Theatre Ealing.
(1) In the dark storm scene the clouds rush across the cyclorama and set. An effect has not been easily possible until recently. ADlight! has the kit to do it!
(2) A sunlit scene in Bohemia - "I thought the clouds looked particularly realistic!"

Also, Romeo & Juliet, St Joan, and many other plays at Questor's Theatre, Ealing, where he works just for the fun of it. "I have very few pictures of my theatre shows - they are notoriously difficult to capture well on film."


The British Regional Theatre Awards - Examples from The Servant, Trainspotting, Twelfth Night. Three drama excerpts recorded especially for the awards ceremony. A chance to create the atmosphere of the theatre for a television audience.
