De Helmondse Musical – 2022

Helmond - The Netherlands

For countless years, De Helmondse Musical has been a household name in Helmond, captivating audiences with their exceptional musical productions. Unfortunately, the original “Hotspot” production of 2020 was halted due to the pandemic. However, De Helmondse Musical Academy quickly formulated a plan for a corona-proof performance, which led to the launch of the project “Er liep een leeuw door de stad…”.

This musical’s story is loosely based in Helmond, where the escaped lion of Karel Stevens, the butcher’s son in Kerkstraat, caused quite a stir. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, 10 young and talented performers narrate the story of the last two corona years using analogies and wonderful musical pieces, making this performance a treat for the senses.

Pronorm, as the permanent technical partner of De Helmondse Musical, contributed to the lighting design by Jasper Claessens and set design by Bart van Bokhoven during this musical. Light is a crucial element in this performance, along with the simple yet highly effective set design. More than 160 fixtures, with over 30 of which are fully pixel-controlled, make this set exceedingly versatile and contribute to the overall ambiance of the show.

“Er liep een leeuw door de stad…” was brought to life by De Helmondse Musical Academy and Pronorm’s expert technical team.
