(Clare, Michigan) Our stage deck supplier & manufacturer StageRight has been on fire with informative posts lately. Today they dropped this gem: a history of staging performances going back to 2000 BCE.
For our customers with theatre backgrounds who love to nerd out with us about this stuff to our corporate clients who ask for "stage extensions" here's a great primer of knowledge - or an extension of what you might already know.
If you're buying stages we'd highly recommend them.
If you need to rent a custom-designed StageRight stage or extend an existing stage, we'd love to help. We've done proscenium extensions, orchestra pit fillers, ADA ramps, on-stage rolling risers, thrusts, and more across North America. From a tiny 8x8 (See recent blog about that one!) to 100,000 ft2 tent floors with integrated stages over extreme changes in ground elevation, we've got you covered.
