your one stop shop
There are very few theatre companies in the country, even in the world, that house all the people in one place that are needed to provide everything required in this industry. This means that producers and production managers are having to seek out, employ and sync up any number of people to simply put on a show.
Here at CongoBlue we have a varied team with years of cross platform experiences, many of whom have worked in theatre and entertainment for many years, and forged careers as designers and engineers in their own right. We understand the pressures of getting a show to stage and delivering a quality performance. Our varied experience and understanding allows us to help productions manage budgets to make the most of their limited resources.
We provide a one stop shop for theatre solutions, able to create a package for production management, audio, lighting, video and scenic construction under one roof, and tailor it to your productions needs. This helps keep control over your spending and makes your budgets stretch further. Having everything come from one place means we can more efficiently spread the cost and in the end supply more for your money whether that be with better specifications or simply make the budget stretch out for longer.
From big budget west end productions all the way to small budget touring shows we can supply a solution that suits the scale of your show and the scale of your budget, allowing you to step up the production value of your offering with minimal extra stress for yourselves.
One point of contact for you, and we can achieve your vision together to create a production of merit.
