Client: Openwide Costal
Venue: The Pavillion Theatre Cromer
The Pavilion Theatre is now the only Theatre at the end of a Pier that produces an in-house show every summer and winter season. The Cromer Pier Show is one of the few true live variety shows in Britain, showcasing live variety acts at their best.
The Theatre has approx. 500 seats making for an intimate experience but drawing quality acts who always enjoy returning to the stage here. The shows provide you with an eclectic blend of great pop music, breath taking West End ballads, speciality acts and humour from top comedians.
In the past there have been many now familiar names developing their careers in Cromer, including Bradley Walsh and Steve Hewlett, the hilarious and fabulously entertaining ventriloquist, who made it to the finals on Britain’s Got Talent 2013. The Cromer Pier Show is nationally famous as an “incubator” for true, quality talent for dancers, singers, actors, magicians, comedians and other variety acts so, by coming to one of our shows, you could be seeing the stars of the future…
Our brief is to design and programme the lighting for both the Summer and Winter shows and is designed using the in-house rig with specials added on a show by show basis.
The show is programmed to a timecode track to ensure repeated seamless renditions of the show over both summer and Christmas seasons.
The two and a half hour show is programmed over a 24 hour period with a tech and dress rehearsal. Add a second show that runs in parallel to the mix and it is a very intense few days work.
This is one of the special shows to work on and we are very proud to have been involved and support the production over the past twelve years.
We are delighted to have been asked to continue working on the show for Openwide Productions as they have won a new contract with North Norfolk District council.
