Fierce windstorms, brutal rays of sunlight and shockingly beautiful views are just a few of the things our dynamic site duo: Sparky Lawrence and Sid Sadowski, and our fabulous site crew are forced to deal with to get the Bard tents up in time for our first performance in five weeks!
On Monday May 27 strong winds threatened to take the tent fabric for a flight over English Bay but with dust in their eyes, the site crew braved the elements and kept everything grounded.
We love to receive feedback at Bard on the Beach and one consistent note from patrons last season was that from certain parts of the house in our new and bigger Mainstage Theatre tent, it could sometimes be difficult to hear the actors. One of the most iconic features of the Mainstage tent is its open back; sound can escape through it and that adds to the challenge of projecting voices, music and sound effects throughout the large space. So – a new custom designed sound system was needed.
