When it comes to organising a performance or presentation, the size of the stage required to meet your needs is an obvious consideration. Besides the size, the shape also plays a critical role when it comes to creating a good impression. Traditional theatre style design frames can be helpful when creating perspective effects with scenery which can make a small stage appear to have more depth. Other production may opt to use ‘theatre in the round’ which allows the observers to see from more angles, but this can be logistically difficult.
A compromise solution that is always successful is the ‘apron’ or ‘thrust’ stage – this is a stage that juts out into the audience, allowing speakers or performers more room to move about and engage effortlessly with the audience. When considering the look and feel you are trying to generate with your stage, keep in mind that some stage hire Adelaide companies can help you with these design elements. All you need is talk to your stage hire company and let them know what you want.
You may consider acoustics when locating your stage, more so when you are renting or using a sound system. Ensuring that those on stage can make themselves heard is critical as well as making sure that the audience can see them, which is where proper stage lighting comes in. If you need your stage to be well-lit, then you need to let your stage hire company know in good time so that they can make arrangements for that as setting up the lighting system is communicated and can take time depending on the sophistication required.
For an outdoor event, you will want to consider what the weather to expect in the planned location. Doing this will help you decide on whether you need to provide a cover for the performance. While this solves one problem it raises another issue that is worth considering – a well-covered stage is reliable, but this can increase wind resistance compared to an open stage setup, which could result to problems if there are high winds on the day.
It is therefore wise to work with a highly regarded stage hire Adelaidecompany, primarily for safety, but also to ensure that technical problems do not interrupt your event unnecessarily. There are many companies offering stage hire out there that can achieve this, and all you need is find the best. Ensure that you are working with a company that has a good track record and many years of experience in the industry. They should as well offer you affordable services as sometimes stage hire can be very expensive.
