Ive been asked to spec mics and sound for a outdoor mini theatre production. Involving 2 performers in a booth (think punch & judy lifeseze). Theywant to mic voices and add incidental underscore to speakers fixed to side or top of 2.5m x 1m booth (audiences 50-250). without an enginner on the mix or FOH... ahhh!
Any suggesttions greatly appreciated. I'm thinking: - Belt pack radios with either slim hedset mics or cardiod lavaliers, fitted into their masks (2 peice mask with clear mouth area). Problem is they duck up/down in the booth, ruff around play fight etc, hang in/out of booth.
Fixed mics seem impossible as the gain b4 feedback gunna be a constant issue so close to speakers, would have to be concealed aestheticallY and they twist and wrestle about alot so on/off axis..
Any suggestions?? and or recomended mics?
