AV Connections theatrical audio visual and lighting for performances at Addlestone Academy

theaterical performance audio visual lighting by AV Connections Charleston SC


One of the greatest joys of providing AV rentals in Charleston, SC is our work with theatrical audio visual and lighting for performances throughout the Lowcountry.

AV Connections works with every type of performance need for concerts, bands, recitals, ballets, and dramatic theater. We are always especially pleased to be called for audio visual and lighting for performances for schools and universities. It’s always exciting! The thrill of rehearsals and live performances. But when the audio visual and lighting for performances job is for young performers, we are so pleased to help.

Of course, our audiovisual and stage lighting work takes us to many of the venues and shows of Spoleto Festival, and throughout stages and preforming arts centers of South Carolina but, heading over to the Addlestone Academy to do the audio visual and lighting for performances is still a top honor. So, we’ve been out at the Jewish Community Center which shares a campus with Addlestone to get the school set up for thespians. And it was such fun!

AV Connections has the pleasure of providing audio visual and lighting for performances to the true greatest shows on earth, right here in Charleston, SC.

We were off to beautiful Bluffton, SC this weekend to partner with Charleston’s premier wedding planners, Southern Protocol for a wedding at a private residence. As you can see, what began with an open field was transformed into a tented ballroom. Once the sailcloth tent was erected, we were on site to string literally 1,000+ cafe bulbs throughout the soaring tent and out onto the field. It was an extraordinary job site. We worked along the best teams in the Charleston wedding industry. The built a custom dance floor. They designed floral coffee tables. The site hummed with creativity and beauty.

When it comes to SC wedding event lighting of a private residence, AV Connections has the ability and inventory to create a new world party in a quiet old field.
