Deviation from the house rep plot, beyond the three focusable specials included in the rental,
requires submission of a legible light plot, instrument schedule, and color list to the Madrid
Theatre’s Technical Director 2 weeks prior to load-in. Relocating and changing trims of the
battens require additional crew time. The Madrid’s T.D. will need to schedule and hire
Madrid personnel to hang and focus the revised plot, the cost of which will be reflected on
your final invoice.
When bringing in equipment, it is the user’s responsibility to ascertain compatibility with all
Madrid electrical and/or audio systems.
Only Madrid employees are allowed in the catwalks. Only Madrid employees can hang,
circuit and operate our lighting equipment (including our lighting console and our
GOBOS – Gobos used at the Madrid Theatre are B Size Patterns.
The Madrid Theatre stage is 40’ wide by 30’ feet deep by 23’6” high. It has a semi-sprung
floor: black 4’x8’ Masonite panels in two layers of ¾” plywood are supported by 2”x4”s
which rest on rubber pads on top of a concrete bed. There is no wing space whatsoever.
The stage is surrounded (stageleft, stageright and upstage) by black cinderblock walls covered
with 12’6” high black-painted wood sound baffles. The baffles are permanent and may not be
removed, painted or drilled.
Set assembly is allowed in the facility, but set construction is NOT. The renter must bring in
all tools. The stage load-in door is located center upstage; 10’ high by 7’ wide double-door
swinging into the backstage hallway. The load-in door from the alley behind the theatre is a
7’ 101/2” wide double door swinging in to the backstage hallway. The backstage hallway is
10’ high by 6’ wide. The upstage load-in door remains closed during all performances. There
is a standard sized emergency exit door located mid-stage in the stageright wall that remains
closed at all times.

Painting is NOT allowed inside the facility. Limited touch-up painting is allowed, provided
that the stage is properly tarped to protect black surface. Spray painting is NEVER allowed.
Renters may paint the stage deck with prior approval by the Madrid’s T.D. Stage floor
pockets may not be painted. The renter will purchase and supply all required painting
materials. Madrid staff will not do the actual painting, however, the Madrid T.D must
supervise the work.
To return stage deck to original black the renter will also purchase and supply one five gallon
drum of Colorama True Black traffic paint #3084 by Pervo, three rolls of 2” masking tape, six
rollers, three roller sticks and three roller pans. A three man four-hour minimum call is
required to restore the stage, the cost of which is charged onto the renter’s bill.
The stage may be drilled with drywall screws. Lag screws and Barrel Bolts may be used with
the T.D.’s approval. Lag screw holes and Barrel Bolt holes must be filled with the proper
sized wooden dowels, purchased by the renter, during the theatre restore.
Unusually heavy wear on the deck may, at T.D.‘s discretion, warrant a paint restoration or
Masonite panel replacement.
There is a curved thrust pit extension: 6’ deep center-stage and 4’ deep at the offstage corners.
It is a Stageright steel scaffolding configuration with 4’ wide platforms. The flooring is
finished with black wood on one side and a medium blue carpet on the other. The pit
extension height can be lowered from stage level in 6” increments to ground floor level.
Multi-level configurations are possible. The pit extension can also be entirely removed,
exposing the recessed pit 3’ below ground floor level. The recessed pit has a maximum
capacity of 8 people. A Glamour Wall is available for the recessed pit. However, there is not
a Glamour Wall for when the pit is set at ground floor level. Please note that the first row of
house seats (Row A) has been permanently removed. When the pit is at floor level, we do not
sell Row B due to sight line reasons.

The house rep has the pit extension at FLOOR level. A pre-arranged three man five-hour
minimum call is required to adjust the height of the pit, the cost of which, as well the cost of
restoring the pit to floor level, is charged onto the renter’s bill. The pit extension may not be
painted, nor drilled.
The Madrid Theatre’s Main Curtain is a two piece medium blue velour that travels from side
to center, landing approximately 1’ upstage of the pit. It is a manual pull and may only be
traveled by Madrid Staff. The Main Curtain is never removed.
The Madrid Theatre has a 21’ 10” high by 36’ wide white Cyclorama located 2 ½’ downstage
of the upstage wall. It is a manual pull that travels stageright to stageleft, and may only be
traveled by Madrid Staff.
The Madrid Theatre house hang has four 40’ by 4’24 oz. black velour borders and three sets
of 8’ by 24’ 24 oz. Black velour legs. See light plot for positions and trims.

by 24’ 24 oz. black velour legs, three 38’ by 4’ 24 oz. black velour borders, and three sets of
8’ by 21’ 10” 24 oz. black velour borders in storage.
The Madrid Theatre is a DEAD HUNG HOUSE; 12 pipes total, 2 pipes are fixed, trims less
than 21’ 10” not available. Relocating soft goods and/or dead-hung pipes is an additional
labor cost to renters.
All special rigging requirements must be discussed and approved by the Technical Director
prior to load-in. Rigging materials must be provided by renter and approved by the T.D.
The Madrid Theatre has two 10’ by 23’ dressing rooms backstage. Each has a comfortable
capacity of ten persons, and is equipped with lighted make-up mirrors, a full size mirror,

There are several specific locations in the house to place outside video equipment and
cameras. Most of them are designated as handicapped spots, and are therefore subject to
ticket sales by handicapped patrons. Depending on the sound demands of the production, an
audio signal may be sent from the mixing console. If the camera operator requires a wireless
audio feed, we must know the frequency of the transmitter. We will not be able to
accommodate this request if it interferes with wireless mic equipment. This must be prearranged with the T.D. all video equipment must be set-up and tested 1½ hours prior to the
house opening. Late arriving equipment will not be allowed to set-up.
There is a rental fee for our follow-spot. You must use one of our technical personnel to run
the follow-spot.
The Madrid’s T.D. must be notified 2 weeks in advance if you plan on using the 200A 3
Phase Cam-Loc Company Switch located backstage. Only the T.D. can tie-in and throw The
Switch. The theatre does not have tails or distro.
We ABSOLUTELY reserve the right to refuse to use, hang, locate, or operate any equipment
in a manner that is unsafe or illegal. All practicals are subject to the T.D.’s approval.
Worklight rehearsals do not include the use of the theatrical lighting system.
Inventory in storage may be in the process of being repaired, and therefore availability is not
guaranteed. Please call to verify.
