ABOUT THE “SOUND” OF “THE SOUND OF MUSIC”

“When you’re doing THE SOUND OF MUSIC, you want the SOUND to be first-rate,” says Producing Artistic Director BT McNicholl. “And that’s what we’ll deliver with a lush orchestra of 17 professional musicians and our new state-of-the-art sound system. Starting in 2019, La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts began to overhaul the acoustics in the theatre for the first time in over 40 years. Custom-made acoustic panels were mounted on the walls of our historic theatre, and now, at last, the finishing touch: we have them installed throughout the orchestra pit! Once you add the Broadway-caliber speakers – carefully tuned by master audio technician Phil Allen (Phantom of the Opera) and our own resident sound wizard Josh Bessom – plus top-of-the-line microphones, a brand-new soundboard, and even a special booth for our drummer, you’ll find that the SOUND of music at La Mirada Theatre has never been better!”
