There is tech stuff: lots of cables etc
The techbox is the main place you’ll find techies. From here they control all the light, sound, and occasionally projections for the shows.
Bertha is the massive floodlight ontop of the techbox.
They changed them to the current ones in 2013, going to 3 LED lights called the Three Sisters of Bertha, Eartha and Mertha, though it’s mostly just refered to as ‘Bertha’.
Before there there was a massive, tons-of-energy-consuming light
Of course the techbox hasn’t always been there, originally they just sat on the balconies. The first one was built in at some point in early 80s, which had a roof but no windows until the 90s (when it got some horrible perspex ones), and wasn’t leveled so it had 3 different floors. By the time of the 90s it was sagging. In approx. easter '94 they rebuilt it to the current design (though without windows because they ran out of money, the windows came later).
This is what it looked like around 2008
The carpet was redone in 2005, and again for Fringe 2013. There’s two notes underneath it for whoever redoes it in the future.
It was repalinted and glazed in July 91, and in 96 sometime.
We got a new lighting desk in 1991
They found a traffic light underneath it once.
It finally got door handles in 2018
