nickjrlive1The show features many Nickelodeon characters
USA - Part Broadway-style stage show, and part story-driven concert, Nick Jr. Live! Move to the Music is on a national tour. The lively and colourful show, which is Vstar Entertainment’s third collaboration with Nickelodeon, has many of the network’s characters like The Bubble Guppies, PAW Patrol, and Dora The Explorer sharing the same stage for the first time.
Supporting this cast of children’s favourites as they sing, dance and charm their way into young hearts is a collection of 47 Maverick and nine Ovation fixtures from Chauvet Professional.
Colour rendering is very important when it comes to working with such a recognizable intellectual property, according to Jessica Mrovka, technical services manager at VStar Entertainment. Because the audience loves the characters presented on this tour and knows everything about them, even slight deviations from familiar colourisations would be quickly noticed.
Light blue is the dominant colour scenically. To coordinate with this scenic design, the lighting team used softer blue tones for the stage production’s lighting. Everything shifts just a little cooler in the colour scheme for washes and key lighting. This contrasts with some of the more dramatic colours being used by the LED neon embedded in the scenic elements, and the LED acrylic panels lining the scenic platform. Having the LED neon and panels on stage, along with the LED Video Wall behind the performance space, means that the lighting must have enough punch to stand out against these elements.
The Chauvet Professional fixtures in the tour’s all-LED rig have been more than up to that challenge. Included in this group of fixtures are 29 Maverick MK1 Spots, six Maverick MK2 Spots and 12 Maverick MK3 Spots, which are used for side and down lighting, specials, front lighting and aerial effects. Also, part of the rig are four Ovation P-56UV par units that are used for back lighting, and five Ovation B-2805FC batten-style washes.
