Top 15 Ways School Should Fundraise

Posted by Shalina Wozny on May 22, 2019 11:00:00 AM

We published a version of this blog on how schools should fundraise back in 2017. We thought it would be time to update the list in 2019 since the new fiscal year with new possibilities starts for many schools and churches on July 1st. What if you involved more community members and did some events to fundraise?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on May 1, 2019 11:00:00 AM

Like many organizations, we are wrapping up the end of the fiscal year. July 1st starts a new date with new budgets in place. However, you may find that you're finding ways to use what's left of your budget for fear that it will go away next fiscal year. Take a moment to get excited about the new possibilities instead of the weighing pressure money can have.

What Are The Dimensions of Acoustical Shells?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Apr 24, 2019 11:00:00 AM

We receive request for quotes all the time asking for acoustical shells/band shells/music shells, whichever area you need these clarity enforcing shells for your performances. Knowing the dimension, especially the width of acoustical shells, will help determine how many you will need in the back of your stage setup. Another important note is that the shells can be curved inward into a V shape in order to fit more acoustical shells in the stage setup. A straight line across the back of the stage works as well.

To help answer the first question we need answered to provide you a quote, we have our acoustical shells dimensions below with recommendations for how many you might need based on your space.

What are the dimensions of ADA Ramps?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Apr 10, 2019 11:00:00 AM
An ADA Ramp gives disabled persons access to all events with our portable ramps. It's a great and necessary feature. They are ADA-approved which means you won’t have to worry about compliance issues.

You're probably wondering what the dimensions of ADA ramps are available for the size of your stage. Design layout is also another factor that some organizations have not considered before. Participants feeling comfortable and safe is your first concern, with proper stage setup as your close second. To help out, we have our ADA ramp below with information to help break down the dimensions and layouts.

3 Broadway Plays in 2019

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Apr 3, 2019 11:00:00 AM

I have to fangirl a little bit over these broadway plays/musicals. Some have recently come out in 2019 and others seem to be coming back for a revival - either on broadway or other media platform versions. Disclaimer: These are just the ones that have sparked my attention and that seem pretty popular either for their long history in broadway or a push to produce a broadway version.
