Video recording theatrical shows

I'm getting involved in making video recordings of stage performances at the school where I work, mainly plays, and sometimes with very "experimental" lighting, which I am finding quite difficult. I use mini-DV, with Canon XL1 and Sony TRV900 cameras.

The directors want archive records, but also want the final production to look just like the actual performance.

Does anyone have any experience of this sort of thing, or else sources of information?

Very many thanks - a bit embarrassing not to have noticed it.
