Raleigh, N.C.’s biggest party this October 31, 2009 was the “Wicked” themed bat mitzvah at the Renaissance Marriott at North Hills. Performers from N.C. Theater’s hit musical “Wicked” entertained guests in an elaborately festive green, purple and blue setting.
Showtime Events handled all the lighting, creating a truly incredible atmosphere befitting All Hallows Eve. This included dance floor lighting, spotlighting and LED up-lighting throughout the room, as well as additional room wash lighting. LED lights on each table illuminated the elaborate (and amazing!) centerpieces created by English Garden Florals. In addition all 200+ people in attendance wore custom designed “Wicked” acrylic party pass necklaces that were each illuminated with a personal LED. This was the first bar or bat mitzvah in the area to have these at the event!
Swank Cakes created an amazing “Wicked” theme cake that really blew away everyone in attendance. It was nothing short of cake artwork! Evan Pike of Andrew Bryant Photography took spectacular photos during the night.
Showtime Events also provided a 21 foot, curving acrylic LED bar for the massive main bar in the room and a fun, multi-tiered acrylic LED candy bar station. Both were big hits with guests as the lighting in the room widely varied in predetermined patterns and color morphs during the night! Above the bar and candy table Showtime Events projected 2 full color gobos that matched the “Wicked” party theme of the event.
This bat mitzvah was one of the grandest events the Triangle has ever seen, and one that will not soon be forgotten. We were honored to be part of the planning and execution of this incredible production.
