Long running ice show ‘Hot Ice’, which takes place annually at the Pleasure Beach Arena, is one of the highlights of Blackpool’s summer season and this year’s production ‘Euphoria’ has been no different.

‘Euphoria’ was a spectacular fast-moving live performance, and has been billed “the coolest show in town”. Featuring international ice-skating champions from around the world and over 400 stunning costumes, the fabulous production dazzled audiences throughout the summer season.

Lighting plays a huge part in bringing these spectacular performances to life, therefore, for many years Stageworks Worldwide Productions (the production team behind Hot Ice) have worked closely with specialist equipment provider, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) to keep their lighting rig up-to-date. This year they added a number of Claypaky fixtures to their already extensive set-up.

Claypaky products supplied includes; Claypaky Mini-B – their smallest LED beam;

Claypaky HY B-EYE K15 – LED wash light, beam light, and a spectacular visual effect projector all in one; and Claypaky Sharpy Plus – beam and spotlight.

AC-ET’s Andy Mahaffey comments; “It is always a pleasure to work with Amanda and the Stageworks team to deliver state of the art lighting equipment to support their world-class performance. Choosing the correct fixtures for the job is always key, and I thoroughly enjoy supporting the production team to ensure they get exactly what they need to create the stunning looks this show requires.” 

Amanda Thompson OBE, President of Stageworks Worldwide Productions and Producer & Director of Hot Ice comments, “We are delighted to continue to use A.C. Entertainment Technologies’ products at Pleasure Beach Arena. We choose to work with AC-ET due to the quality of their products and the great service that we always receive from them.”
