What is a rental stage Thrust?
A stage thrust is a stage that has 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 build 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.
