Technical


To help assure a successful performance for both VINCENT MAGIC PRODUCTIONS and your audience, please take a moment to review the following technical requirements for each production. If your theater is especially large please contact us for a lighting plot and cue sheet. If we are using your light system, please have instruments mounted and approximately focused prior to our arrival to expedite the set-up process. In most instances, however, VINCENTMAGIC PRODUCTIONS lighting and sound system will be suitable.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS

for "Modern Stage Magic" / "Casino Magic" / Great American Magic Sideshow" / "The Magic Factory"

Electrical Requirements

Three (3) separate 110 volt 20 amp grounded circuits within 50 feet of center stage. Please note that not only separate outlets but also separate circuits are necessary to avoid overload and interference from sound and light equipment. As our dimmer board cannot compensate for reversed polarity on circuits, please identify the above circuits that are without reversed polarity with a polarity tester.


Please have a custodian available at arrival time to help locate circuits, electrical panels, etc.


Space Requirements

Performing area must be at least 22' width x 20' depth x 10' height.​ Stage and wings must be clean and free of sets, risers, platforms, music stands, chairs and other objects before performers arrive for setup.

Stage and wings must be swept and mopped prior to the performer's arrival.

Facility Requirements

There should be one changing room within 50 feet of the performance area and access to both men's and women's restrooms.

Performers must have access to the performance space at least three (3) hours prior to the performance start time to allow for set up and proper preparations.


Please Note: Several pyrotechnic effects as well as a fog / haze generator may be utilized during the performance. Please make arrangements regarding the smoke detectors in the performance area to accommodate.

VINCENT MAGIC PRODUCTIONS shows are best viewed in a darkened performance space. If one is not available, please make arrangements to cover windows to block out as much light as possible to give the audience the best presentation.

Wireless microphones are used in the majority of the performance. While the relative transmission range is set for less than 500 feet, it may represent a problem with interference in isolated cases. Please contact us if your electrical circuitry is serving an internal cable network or if the stage is in close proximity to a radio station, police station or other transmission.

If any of the requirements pose a problem or if you have any questions, please contact
VINCENT MAGIC PRODUCTIONS at info@vincentmagicproductions.com.

Thank you for choosing VINCENT MAGIC PRODUCTIONS. We look forward to bringing enjoyable entertainment to your audience.
