What color/materials are theater curtains?
Any color of the rainbow! Curtains can come in a variety of materials from velour to cottons, to scrims and screen material. They can be dyed to a custom color or there are stock colors such as burgundy and black. Please contact us if you are looking to install, replace, re-fire proof or repair your stage curtains.
What are the curtains on the side of the stage called?
Generally all curtains that come down from the side of the stage are called Legs and they are used to help frame the stage action from left to right. A Curtain who is at the top of the stage and used to hide the lighting pipes or very top of a piece of scenery is called a Border. Using a combination of legs and borders a stage can be reconfigured to hide the technical elements that the director/designers don’t want the audience to see.
What does a stage rigger do?
A stage rigger’s main responsibility is to ensure that all the sound, video and lighting equipment that is to be hung on a pipe, battan, or other position which may or may not need to move during the production is safely installed and secure.
What is a rigging point?
A rigging point is a specific place(s) in the ceiling where you’re able to hang things within a venue.
