Tour: Control Booth

Tivoli Stage Crew

Created in 2003, the control booth is the modern area for

controlling lighting and sound for live events.  One row of seats

was lost but this area is necessary for modern shows.  It contains

the sound mixing equipment, plus the modern electronic stage

lighting dimming system.  Computers are included for various

functions.  1 to 3 crew members occupy this area during a live

show depending upon the technical requirements.  When not in

use it is covered to keep it secure and clean.
