The theatre does not have a technician. There is no standard “general cover”, so even if you have very limited lighting requirements, please remember that lights will need to be rigged. Therefore… the company must supply a technician who is fully competent to rig and run the show.
We do have a number of freelance technicians who work regularly at The Rondo and we can put you in contact with them if necessary. Some will do special deals for very limited requirements. If no technician is supplied, we cannot guarantee assistance. If a member of our staff has to act as a technician, you will be charged. If you foresee any problems please email the theatre, before your event (See Contact Us page for email links).
