The Performance/Speaking Area needs to be at least 16 feet wide and ideally 6 or more feet deep, and without visual obstruction of the stage surface. A neutral and dark background is best.
Auditorium and Multi-Purpose Room Stage Lighting should be brilliant into Mr. Trivanovich's face, ideally covering 16 feet wide across the downstage center area.
In Multi-Purpose Rooms that have a low or no stage (less than 3'), nor bleachers, please seat the students directly on the floor without chairs. This is so that the students can see Mr. Trivanovich's feet, and while he is performing in a seated or kneeling position. Also, do not wrap the audience in a "horse-shoe" arrangement around Cary - they must not view the performance from the direct sides.
In Gymnasiums with bleacher seating, the audience must be seated only along one wall. If seating overflow on the gym floor, please seat them directly on the floor without chairs. This is so the students can see Mr. Trivanovich while he is performing in a seated or kneeling position. Do not wrap the audience in a "horse-shoe" arrangement around Cary - they must not view the performance from the direct sides. If floor seating exceeds 500 students, a portable stage is requested (but not required), ideally 20' wide, at least 8' deep, and 3' high.
Sound - Please provide a sound system adequate for the size of the room and a mic with a stand. Cary uses music soundtracks which he prefers to operate if the sound system can be set-up on stage (or on the middle of the gym floor in gymnasiums). Cary travels with his soundtracks on his laptop and has a variety of connection adaptors which he can plug into your sound system. If your sound system cannot be set-up on the performance area for Cary to operate, please provide a sound technician to operate the school's CD/Music player for him during the assembly.
Technical Prep - Please arrange for Cary a private 45 minute prep time with sound and lights prior to the assembly.
IN HIGH SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES HELD IN AUDITORIUMS, please arrange for a 60 minute uninterrupted, private rehearsal with sound and lighting technicians prior to the assembly.
If any concerns arise about the setup, please contact Mr. Trivanovich to discuss options.
