2021 TAIT Yearbook

Our scenic teams worked tirelessly to provide multiple packages of soft goods and scenic elements for both the West End show and the Royal Variety Performance. We provided a variety of drapes, Austrian valances, and intricate scenic pieces to bring the show to life onstage. Scenic Images Left & Top Right: Matt Crockett Moulin Rouge! The Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre in London was our biggest West End show automation since Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with TAIT Wakefield taking on control and automation design, installation and commissioning, alongside custom electronics work, and iconic scenic elements for the show. We provided a total of 32 BigTow 2 winches and 29 custom axes to move scenic pieces, trucks, and lifts around the stage, alongside ornate scenic pieces to complete the distinctive look of the show. In addition, we provided scenic, staging, and LED integration for the Royal Variety Performance, a fundraising event for the Royal Variety Charity, which saw us reworking vast swathes of the show for the smaller Royal Albert Hall venue. 65
