Chippendales Production at Horseshoe Casino Baltimore
The Casino needed to bring in a full production package to create a nightclub atmosphere for four shows with the renowned Chippendales dancers. The existing permanent rigging points, at only 15’ of trim height, had to be used to create a proper atmosphere with high quality audio, lighting, and HD video projection.
As the artists were performing in another country right up until install day, production advance communication was limited.
To tackle this challenge, RCI Systems along with The Horseshoe production team designed a package using 16 of the existing rig points allowing for strategic placement of audio downstage of the live microphones and supporting the placement of moving lights away from the support trussing used for video. This placement prevented vibrations and movements of the lights from transferring onto a projected video image.
Weight restrictions were satisfied by using single-array L’ACOUSTIC high-Q/high-power ARCS speakers and Elation 200i LED Wash fixtures instead of multiple zones of speakers and conventional PAR fixtures. The video image was scaled at the switcher to allow for screen size and fixed projector placement.
RCI provided the audio, lighting, and video leads and operators and coordinated riggers, hands, and a wardrobe mistress to fill out the crew. The casino provided deck hands and wardrobe assistants from the house team to assist the artist’s Production Manager.
