what's the wattage in the lamps you're using? If they're around 300, i'd get rid of the 38's, as in a small space, I don't think they'll be that usefull (not enough spread). If it's quite small, you can probably go down to like 10-12 64's. I would throw some interesting colors in them (purples and greens and stuff) and create an interesting static wash, then I'd use the 56's with a neutral color like a very very light pink or blue and position them to hit the musicians or performers or whoever. Whatever's left over, like a few 16's, I'd use as back light, you probably only need 4. If the ceiling are quite low, make certain you're using wide beam lamps and they're rotated so as to be shooting horizontal. best of luck
