ROBERT PRIDHAM TRIBUTE WHEN: Sunday, June 11, 2017, at 6:30 pm WHERE: Chatham Community Playhouse, 23 N. Passaic Ave., Chatham
Robert Pridham, beloved director of such Chatham Players productions as Six Degrees of Separation, All My Sons, Rabbit Hole, The Graduate, Of Mice and Men and Angels in America, will be celebrated on at the Chatham Playhouse. Bob loved few things more than a cocktail party, so please wear your finest and join us for memories, manhattans, food and jazz.
We welcome all who worked with Bob, those who knew him personally and those who experienced his magnificently poignant productions.
The Chatham Community Players are excited to be hosting a “Stage Lighting Workshop” presented by Nicholas (Nik) Marmo on This workshop is ideal for individuals both new to stage lighting and for those with some experience looking for a refresher.
The workshop will be split into two sections. The first hour will cover a brief history of theatrical stage lighting before taking a closer look at three types of stage lights commonly found in both community and professional theatres alike: the Altman 360Q series, the Altman Shakespeare series, & the ETC Source-Four line. The first section of the workshop will conclude with a brief look at current innovation and what the next generation of stage lighting units may look like (LEDs, intelligent lighting fixtures, and video projection).
The second hour of the workshop will explore theatrical stage lighting control, with an introduction to the ETC Express console (ETC Expression line) and the ETC Ion console (ETC Eos line). The workshop will conclude with a brief discussion on stage lighting design theory.
