Shanklin Theatre

EducationPerforming Arts

Location: Evansville, IN

Completed Date: February 2010

Project Type: Renovation

Application: Front of House

The original lighting grid in the Shanklin Theatre consisted of subway grating. This grating, found over the stage and the thrust stage, definitely limited lighting possibilities. In order to light the stage, the subway grating panels had to be removed. This created a safety hazard to students. The theatre department contacted IA Stage to replace the grating with SkyDeck tension grid for better access and safety. Since you can light directly through SkyDeck, the need to remove  panels to accommodate lighting was eliminated. Students can safely walk up to a light without the fear of falling through a hole. In addition, IA Stage provided a hinged panel to allow for any equipment to be pulled easily to the grid.
