New State-of-the-Art Audio System

For San Luis Obispo Little Theatre

In 2011, the Hind Foundation granted $50,000 to the San Luis Obispo Little Theatre (SLOLT) for the purchase and installation of a state-of-the-art audio system for the main theatre. The new audio system includes new body/handheld microphones, coverage microphones, mixing boards, amplifiers, subwoofers, intercoms, speakers, and portable sound equipment specifically designed for musicians. These capital improvements provide a more enjoyable theatrical experience for patrons, a more professional technical experience for directors and artistic teams, and, most importantly, more significant and practical training experiences for the Little Theatre’s technical volunteers.

Noteworthy Outcomes
•    Continued Legacy
The SLOLT is proud to be one of the oldest continuously running community theatres in the nation, and can now add that they have the latest technology in audio capabilities to their repertoire.

•    Hands-On Experience
Home of the acclaimed Academy of Creative Theatre, SLOLT helps young performers develop life-long theatrical skills. Their new audio system gives students a hands-on experience with the latest audio technology, increasing their chances for advanced job opportunities after graduation.

•    Volunteer Interest
The new technology has increased the interest of potential volunteers to dedicate time to the theatre.

“Our initial goals changed and expanded after receiving valuable feedback from the Foundation. Thanks to that input and the Foundation’s generosity, our new sound system has improved our audience’s experience and expanded our volunteer base.”
~Kevin Harris, Managing Artistic Director

“In the ‘Behind the Scenes’ department, applause must be offered to show sponsor The Hind Foundation, which recently donated $50,000 to purchase a new audio system. This kind of investment in local community theatre is invaluable not only to the audience enjoyment of productions like This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll, but to the experience of the artistic and technical volunteers behind the scenes.”

~ Kevin Harris, Managing Artistic Director
