Stage Management


Kabuki Drop

See Kabuki Drop Paperclip page.


Three half blacks were hung on fly bars and folded back half-way and gridded to help sound on bars 6, 15 and 23. We were originally going to use dog legs and a border hung on hemp from stage right fly floor. To minimize the amount of help rigging we had to do we ended up using a 6m scaff bar with corners and smaller scaff bars to make a false pros arch over the entrance. It was hung from 5 points from pulleys on the grid.


On bar 1 and bar 30 full blacks were hung to mask the back wall and iron. Over prompt side fly floor on a 6m scaff bar was hung with three hemp lines and tied off over the rail. On the bar we hung a half black behind the truss and lighting ladders.


Using two automation lines we bridled using strops to barrel clamps to a 6m scaff bar. A black was tied onto it. This black was used to hide the stage during scene changes. The two points were grouped on the desk and states were programmed for every time the black moved.


Risk Assessments

Risk assessments were written for hanging truss, working on the grid, the Kabuki drop and steel deck assembly. We used generic risk assessments for vertical access ladder, counterweight bars and chain hoists.
