Production Tech Specs
American Music Theatre is a modern, 1607-seat, Proscenium Theater located in historic Lancaster, PA.

AMT employs a dedicated and hard-working Production Team who look forward to making sure that your event is executed smoothly from load in to load out.

Load-In & Parking
Parking for tour busses and/or semi’s is located directly behind the stage. Please see current parking lot spec for details.
There is shore power at the venue, located at the center of the back wall. There are (3) 50-amp RV receptacles for tour use along with (3) 20-amp GFCI receptacles below.
Loading doors at Stage level:
- Covered loading dock, 7′ 11″ x 8′ door
- Ramp to stage level, 12′ x 12′ door
All Electrical needs including stage, sound and backline power must be advanced with AMT.
- 100A, 3-phase, to cam-loc’s, SR
- 600A, 3-phase, to cam-loc’s, SL
All rigging needs must be advanced with AMT. We have accommodated very complex rigging plots for Broadway tours, but due to the construction of our grid, flexibility is required. All bridles must hang below the walking grid indicated below and pass through 10″ loft wells to reach the high steel.
Loft wells run perpendicular to the proscenium at Center Line, and 9′, 18′, 27′, and 36′ L & R of Center.
There are no FOH sound rigging points downstage of the proscenium, therefore most artists stack their PA on the apron as opposed to flying it.
FOH Lighting Truss rigging points are available. See the attached Rigging Plan.
AMT can usually clear linesets for moving lights, backdrops, etc. when advanced. With the current production, some linesets are not able to be cleared.
- High Steel: 61′
- Walking Grid: 55′
Our in-house PA System consists of a Clair Brothers C-Series line array and CS218 subs with Lab.gruppen amplification and DBX Driverack EQ. We also have (1) Yamaha PM5d-RH on stage and (1) Yamaha CL-5. All other sound and backline needs must be advanced.
- State-of-the-art flown, stereo line array system; custom designed, built and installed by Clair Bros. Audio and Clair Solutions, Summer 2018
- The C-series line array is a 3-way box, boasting a frequency response of 60Hz – 20KHz (+/- 3db) and features Clair proprietary TruFit technology with continuously variable wave guides, custom-tailored to our room
- There are eight (8) boxes per side and three (3) hung as a center-fill (on a separate matrix)
- Four (4) CS218 High-output Subs are flown, on a separate matrix, each consisting of 2×18″ drivers with power handling up to 2800W, each. Two (2) additional CS218 subs are installed, left and right, in the proscenium, at stage level
- Four (4) Clair FF2 front-fill speakers cover the downstage edge and are also driven from a separate matrix
- The entire system is powered by Lab.gruppen Amplification and Lake Processing and will easily reach 110+ db (A-weighted) at FOH
AMT’s house lighting plot is a “repertory plot” designed to accommodate our in-house productions as well as touring artists with minimal changes.
AMT can provide basic re-focusing to accommodate specific needs, however, any necessary requirements above and beyond this must be advanced at least 2 weeks prior to arrival.
