This show was performed as part of the RMRT 2017 Summer Season in rep with Mamma Mia and West Side Story.  Sound effects were programmed into QLab and were comprised of light ambiance, spot cues, and a pre-recorded chorus of Sieze the Day heard in Pulitzer’s office to sound as though the newsies were singing off in the distance.  The show incoorporatd 22 wireless microphones, 16 band channels, 6 QLab channels, and 8 seperate speaker feeds mixed on a Yamaha LS9-32.   Music was supplied via a live, 6-piece band located in the pit.  Each member of the band had the option of either a heaphone or speaker monitor with direct control over one of their own feeds and a custom mix from the console.  They all ultimately ended up using the heaphone montor to help reduce pit volume to allow for better control in the house.  We went for your typical Disney Pop sound for the show.


The video below features clips from our production.  The audio is a stereo reduction captured from the console during one of the performances.
