Robe creates a Singaporean Tropicana
SINGAPORE: Tropicana the Musical recently ran for a two-week stint at Singapore’s Capitol Theatre with lighting designer Yo Shao Ann putting a range of Robe fixtures to use. Rental company Expo AV-InSync provided the lighting equipment, which included Robe’s Viva CMY LED spot making its Singaporean debut.
The musical was produced by Tan Kheng Hua for Spare Room Productions and directed by Beatrice Chia-Richmond. Tropicana’s lighting rig included 10 Viva CMYs, which were shipped in ahead of the show and set up on the upstage house bars to deliver back lighting. Spiiders and CycBar 15s were also provided from Expo AV-InSync’s existing inventory. The Spiiders were located on the overhead rig and used for general stage washing, while the CycBar 15s were tucked in around the front of the stage and used as footlights.
Jens Poehlker from Robe’s Asia Pacific office ensured that the Viva CMYs were available in time for the show. ‘The fantastic support from Expo AV-InSync and Robe helped us to achieve a really ambitious design,’ commented the production’s technical manager, Denise Low.
