MAC Sound were delighted to provide complete sound design, engineering, equipment and personnel services for the European Premiere of Elf the Broadway Musical.
Following a short run at Plymouth Theatre Royal the production transferred to the Bord Gais Theatre in Dublin for the Christmas season. With near capacity attendance the show featured Ben Forster as Buddy with Aoibhinn McGinnity, Joe McGann and Jessica Martin, UK direction was by Morgan Young.
A complete sound system was installed which included Sennheiser SK2000 radio microphones, AKG, DPA, Neumann, Sennheiser and Shure Orchestra microphones, a DiGiCo SD8 digital mixing console and multiple Martin Audio W8LM line array speaker systems. MAC Sound were also responsible for the extensive Clear-Com communications and closed circuit television systems required for the production.
**** whilst a magnificent live orchestra belt out toe-tapping, beaming-smile-inducing ‘big-band era’ musical accompaniment with finesse. Sound quality for dialogue, song or musical piece in this production is superb – a warm, rounded sound with exceptional clarity.
