Stage Thrusts

What is a Stage Thrust?

Rental stage thrusts are stages that have been built as a temporary addition to an existing stage. Stage thrusts can be used to create a more intimate performance space by extending the stage into the audience, or to give a smaller stage a larger performance area.  When used properly, they create a stunning effect that really makes an event unique.

While most thrusts are built in houses of worship or in theaters, you’ll also see them used in auditoriums or concert venues. They can be especially difficult to build in theaters because they have to span existing seating or a gradual rise in the seating area.  Some theaters will go so far as to take existing seating out to build thrusts and sometimes a house of worship will remove pews that are in the way of the thrust.  Generally, however, it’s easier to build over the existing seating or pews.

Types of events that use stage thrusts

The most obvious example of rental stage thrusts is a fashion runway, but there are all sorts of other events that use thrusts.  Musical theater directors can use thrusts and you’ll see them used in concert performances as well.  Corporate presentations can use them to get a presenter or CEO more in touch with their attendees.  Political events use them as well.
