It’s a Happy New Theatre Year for White Light
UK – White Light is welcoming in 2019 by supplying a range of theatre shows in London’s West End as well as touring productions across the country.
Over the course of 2018, WL supplied the lighting for a variety of smash-hit shows including the critically-acclaimed Company, The Inheritance, Young Frankenstein, The Jungle, The Pinter Season, The King and I, True West and the Oscar Wilde Season. The company also continued to supply long-running hits including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Matilda, Aladdin, Tina – The Musical, 42nd Street and Les Misérables.
WL’s managing director Bryan Raven comments: “We had a fantastic 2018 which was one of our busiest yet. As we progress into 2019, we have hit the ground running and are looking to repeat the success of last year. Our expert customer service teams continue to work with designers, both established and emerging to help achieve their vision.”
In January alone, WL has supplied the lighting for Songs for Nobodies at the Ambassadors Theatre; with the company providing the lights for every single show at the venue last year. Over the next few weeks, WL will also supply All About Eve at the Noel Coward Theatre, The American Clock at the Old Vic and The Price at the Wyndham’s.
Away from the West End, WL is also supplying a range of tours. Shows that have loaded out this month so far include Rain Man, The Lady Vanishes, Abigail’s Party, Wise Children, Ghost, Art and Avenue Q.
The company is also supplying shows within London’s OffWestEnd including Leave to Remain at the Lyric Hammersmith, Aisha at the Old Red Lion Theatre and The Unreturned at Stratford East Theatre Royal. WL is also sponsoring the Best Lighting Design Award at both the WhatsOnStage and OffWestEnd Awards and will also be providing the complete lighting solutions for the VAULT Festival which returns for its seventh year later this month.
Bryan comments: “We continue to invest up to £3 million in brand-new equipment each year, meaning we are able to work on such a large range of shows, both in the West End and across the country. To see our kit being used in venues throughout the UK is a fantastic feeling and we’re delighted that designers return to us year-on-year in order to supply them with a service they won’t receive anywhere else.”
