Pebble Creek Activities
When Pebble Creek decided it was time to completely renovate the Renaissance Theatre, they turned to UPstage Group for all of their Sound and Lighting upgrades. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, UPstage developed and installed a system that is easy to use while providing a top-notch audience experience. Featuring an all-new speaker system with Nexo PS-15, PS-10, and ID24 speakers, the theater now boasts incredible sound tailored to evenly cover every seat in the house, all controlled from a Yamaha TF5 digital sound console for consistent and easily-attainable professional results.
The lighting system is controlled by an ETC Ion console and features a new Cyclorama with Altman SpectraCyc fixtures for an even and vibrant palette.
Recreation Centers of Sun City
RCSC owns and operates seven recreation centers, eight golf courses, one open-air amphitheater, two restaurants, a softball field, a 33-acre man-made lake, and more for the benefit of over 30,000 residents. UPstage has worked on numerous projects with RCSC including sound, projection, and lighting systems their two primary performance venues the SunDial Center and the SunBowl Amphitheater.
The SunDial Center Auditorum boasts seating for over 500 audience members utilizing a flexible, modular design. The venue hosts numerous concerts and events throughout the year across all genres and types. UPstage upgraded the original sound system with a Martin O-line array and Powersoft amplifiers. UPstage also helped the RCSC move into the digital realm with Stagecraft mixers and stage boxes.

RCSC relied on UPstage’s expertise once again when it was time to upgrade the lighting system at the SunBowl Amphitheater.

Christ Presbyterian Church
CPC in Goodyear, AZ utilized UCG’s expertise in audio system design when upgrading from their original starter-system to a full-fledged, professional, sound reinforcement system. They required an easy-to-use console which could be operated by their volunteer staff while offering all of the benefits of a digital board. In addition, the system needed to accommodate a wide variety of material from traditional to contemporary style services and be capable of facilitating a fast changeover.
