Stage Electrics Begins Installation at The Shakespeare North Playhouse

UK – Stage Electrics has begun work on site at Kier Construction’s latest theatrical project, The Shakespeare North Playhouse in Knowsley, Prescot.

The “Playhouse” will be a 350 seat theatre, modelled on the cockpit-in-court design that was popular during the Elizabethan era, and will complete the UK's “Shakespearean triangle”: London, Stratford-upon-Avon and Prescot.

Secured as part of a competitive tender process, the project will see Stage Electrics deliver the infrastructure for lighting, sound and communications throughout the purpose-built venue, including custom patch panels designed and manufactured by the company’s in-house specialist teams.

Karl Formstone, technical project manager for Stage Electrics commented: “When complete, the Shakespeare North Playhouse will be a stunning, state of the art, attraction, and a new standout landmark for Prescot and the surrounding area.”

Working to designs by Architects Austin-Smith:Lord and technical design consultant Arup, the project is expected to be handed over to the Shakespeare North Trust, the operator of the landmark venue on behalf of Knowsley Council, in 2022.
