SCHOOL / THEATRE SOUND SYSTEMS

ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''SOUND SYSTEMS'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION

HIRE EVERYTHING YOU NEED INCLUDING SOUND EQUIPMENT FOR YOUR SCHOOL & THEATRE PRODUCTIONS 

It doesn’t matter whether you're putting on school Christmas production, or preparing for a run of shows in one of London’s most prestigious theatres, On Tour Events can supply top class sound equipment to your organisation.

 

Better still, we can supply, install, and hire out sound equipment to you on a longer term basis if you need it for several days or weeks. No matter your specific requirements, we have the inventory and the experience to provide precisely what you need.

 

So let’s start with taking a quick look at what you might need, before running you through our plentiful sound equipment hire services.

+WHY SOUND EQUIPMENT MIGHT YOU NEED FOR A SCHOOL / THEATRE PRODUCTION?

 

While we don’t want to teach you how to suck eggs if you’re experienced in putting on stage productions, it’s still worth running through the basics. That’s especially the case if you’re coming from an educational background and you’ve been tasked with sourcing the sound (and perhaps lighting) equipment you’ll need for your school’s next musical.

 

The first place to start is always with your PA system. It’s the cornerstone of your audio visual (AV) requirements. Within a PA system for a stage you’ll most likely need your so-called “main” loudspeakers, subwoofers for the basier tones, stage monitors so that the performers on stage can hear everything they need to to remain in sync with the music, and power amplifiers to ensure everything is cranked up to the correct volume and sounding as it should.

 

Once you’ve got those in place, the next item on the list marked as critical is a mixing console along with the associated cabling for all of the above. Once you’ve got everything plugged into your mixing console you can control all of the volumes of the respective pieces of sound equipment, to ensure that nothing drowns out the rest of the ensemble.

 

A considerable amount of your time on the sound mixing side will be dedicated to mixing the microphones. For example, stage productions require the leading roles to mic’d up so that the audience can hear them clearly. You may also want to invest in wired mic options to amplify the sound of the chorus in the background, particularly if you are putting on a musical.

 

Lastly, if you are putting on a professional-level performance, you’ll likely need to invest in an in-ear monitoring system for your star performers. We would argue that these are an absolute necessity for large scale productions such as Christmas pantos, but certainly not crucial for smaller affairs such as school plays.

 

Of course, what you need to hire will depend entirely on your specific needs. However, the pieces of kit mentioned above are usually a pretty solid foundation from which to base your sound requirements.

 

With that in mind, let’s tell you more about what we can offer you when it comes to hiring sound equipment for a school or theatre production.

+ON TOUR EVENTS OFFES INDUSTRY-LEADING SOUND EQUIPMENT SOLUTIONS

 

First, let’s start off by saying we can provide everything you need, regardless of your performance’s size, scale, or location. As one of the UK’s leading event production companies, supplying top-notch audio equipment is a daily activity, and we are increasingly winning work in this sector thanks to our unrivalled quality and quantity of sound equipment.

 

To give you some idea, not only can we supply all of the individual pieces of sound equipment mentioned above (and more), but we also only stock the best brands in the business. We only use brands such as Shure and d&b audiotechnik. If you already work in the industry, you already know that these manufacturers are a byword for quality.

 

But our commitment to quality doesn’t end there. Not only do we rotate out and replenish any stock older than three years, but we also carry out routine servicing and maintenance every six months to ensure they remain at peak performance levels. That goes for our entire inventory of audio equipment, which spans three full warehouses.

 

No one else boasts this commitment to quality, and our track record concerning equipment failures (none) speaks for itself.   

 

Furthermore, we know that if you are putting on a school or theatre production, it’s unlikely to be a one-night affair. That’s why we are happy to supply, install, and lend you our equipment for an extended period. Very few companies in the country can offer the same flexibility without tacking on sizeable additional fees for tying up inventory for so long.

 

But wait, there’s more. We can supply so much more than your sound equipment hire.

 

Stage Lighting Hire

Here at On Tour Events, we regularly put on light shows for 10,000+ fans at music festivals or music concerts, so you can rest assured we have some of the best lighting fixtures money can buy. From stage spotlights to moving head stage washes, our stage lighting hire packages include everything you could conceivably need when it comes to lighting your stage production.

 

Stage Hire for School Productions

While the stage is already embedded into a theatre, that’s not often the case for amateur productions such as school plays and amateur dramatic performances. The good news is that we have a wide array of stage hire packages for you to choose from, including outdoor stage hire options.

 

We can also supply staging that supports the seating for the audience, and you guessed it, we can supply the seats themselves should you need us to!

 

Additional Equipment Hire for School Productions

Last but by no means least, we can also provide any of those extras you might need. Stage props, furniture, projector and screen combos, and even LED screen hire are all available if your budget allows (usually professional performances only).

 

We realise the value of having everything you need supplied by one outfit. That’s why we’ve invested in such a broad spectrum of equipment. With On Tour Events, hiring everything you need is as simple as placing one phone call, and we can take care of the rest. It really is that simple.
