May 2022 Custom Work


Although City Theatrical manufactures a large catalogue of unique lighting accessories, we also like to do custom work, and can do it incredibly quickly. If you need a custom design or fabrication of metal lighting products, electronic design, LED power supplies, custom wireless DMX installations, or nearly any other challenge that you can come up with, call us and we will help you through it.  We’ve done custom work for major TV networks, theme parks, museums, architectural projects, and just about any other type if lighting project you can imagine.




Custom Cut QolorFLEX NuNeon

The client required 12 custom cut QolorFLEX NuNeon® strips with centre taps for power for an entertainment project. City Theatrical custom cut the 12 pieces of QolorFLEX NuNeon linear LED lighting and added the centre taps to provide power for each strip.

Custom Double Yokes

The client required an improved base for the Astera AX5 Triple Par lighting fixtures that could be used a floor mount or hung from a clamp, and would be more stable than the standard yoke. City Theatrical engineers used their expertise to custom design and manufacture these yokes to provide an improved solution for the Astera fixture.

A successful design collaboration — with PRG providing the scenic, lighting, and automation for this jukebox-style musical — in which McLane and Natasha Katz worked together to cleverly hide lots of lights in the set, including QolorFLEX NuNeon.
