The Acorn Theatre Upgrades with PROLIGHTS

UK – A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. (AC-ET) has supplied the Acorn Theatre in Penzance with a full PROLIGHTS LED lighting upgrade.

For over 40 years the Acorn has hosted a wide range of arts practitioners and art forms, including live music, theatre, poetry readings, story-telling, dance, film, lectures and the visual arts. These acts can scale all the way from international tours right down to school plays.

Looking to upgrade its house lighting rig to LED, theatre manager at the Acorn, Richie Cawley, thoroughly researched all his options and found that the extensive PROLIGHTS range best met both their needs and their budget. Andy Mahaffey, External Sales at AC-ET, visited the Acorn to discuss their requirements and show the PROLIGHTS fixtures that would be best suited to their venue.

Impressed by the quality of the LED fixtures, and their ease of use, Acorn invested in a number of PROLIGHTS ECLIPSE Fresnel Juniors, ECLIPSE Junior Zooms and STUDIOCOBs.

When asked about the fixtures Richie commented: “They have been totally brilliant. We are receiving loads of positive comments from visiting Artists and Theatre companies alike about the vast improvement.”

“Andy came to visit to us all the way down here in Penzance, to show us what he recommended for our theatre.” He continued: “I am more than happy with the after sales, Andy has been great.”

Andy commented: “For a small theatre like the Acorn the PROLIGHTS range is ideal. Richie was looking to deliver a high end result on a limited budget, and it is great to see not just the venue but visiting acts finding them really beneficial.”
