Apollo 13: Mission Control Live

Pyramid provided Staging, Lighting, a Truss Sub-Grid for Rigging Support, Rigging, Local Labor, and Video Support for the 2012/13 Tour Rehearsals and subsequent stop at the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall.

Apollo 13: Mission Control was an interesting project.  A live, interactive theatrical play that was very successful in both New Zealand and Australia.  Design Director/ Brad Knewstubb and Design Team/ Robert Larsen created an amazing production for the Hackman Theatre Company.

They traveled to the United States and set up shop in Tacoma, WA for Tour Rehearsals and a week of shows.

Not quite large enough to fill the epic scope of the Tacoma Dome,  the tour settled for the Tacoma Dome Exhibition Hall.  Immediate Problem:  How do you rig in a room without acceptable rigging points?

Not so simple answer:  Lighting Designer and Head of the Pyramid Lighting Department, Rob Sherman, developed a large "stand alone" truss sub-grid to support all of the tour flown elements.   These items included drape, lighting, projection, sound, and screens.

The Tacoma stop was a successful start to their American tour.   Pyramid also provided video support and screens for their Spokane, WA and Winston-Salem tour dates.
