A few pictures of Brendan in action at the Southern Hills Middle Production of "Groovy" on Wednesday, February 29th, 2012.
I also shot a couple of videos (sound quality is so-so) which can be viewed at these links: 1 - 2 - 3

Photography Notes: Pictures taken with a Canon 7D and 70-200/2.8 lens. The lighting on-stage was surpringingly good, so I didn't have to crank the ISO ... although it was somewhat uneven with some hot spots. Since I was shooting F/2.8-4.0, there's not a lot of depth of field ... and on a number of shots, I had great focus ... on the microphones - D'OH! ;-)

Video was shot with the same setup using on-camera shotgun microphone, so sound quality isn't the best, plus the Canon 7D AGC makes for variable levels that pick up background noise in the quiet parts. Videos are down-rezzed from 1920x1080 HD.
