Today’s technology allows producers to put on spectacular events with impressive
effects and staging. However, these sophisticated technologies require a highly-trained
dependable workforce with the specialized skills to set up and operate the equipment
in a safe manner as well as troubleshoot problems, all within a strict timeframe.
Event staging carries significant risks to the producer; either in the form of harm
to staff or audience, damaged rental equipment, or a poor-quality event that does
not meet its intended goals. Local 2 stagehands have the training, skills, and experience
that leverage the latest technology to give you the safest, highest-quality event
Safety is paramount. The technical aspect of theatrical and event production can
be very dangerous as heavy lighting and sound systems are hung above audience and
performers. High voltage, temporary stage structures and automated scenic elements
also pose threats for less experienced crew. In order to provide the safest environment
possible, Local 2 stagehands go through rigorous training, continuing education,
and ETCP certification. When you employ Local 2 stagehands, you can be confident
that your event will be installed by workers with the required training, skills,
and certifications to ensure the safest possible environment for staff, performers,
and audience at your event. Furthermore, we handle rental equipment often costing
over $1,000,000 dollars with the utmost care in order to prevent damage.
Local 2 stagehands provide the best value because our training and skills make us
the most efficient and productive workforce for your event. We do more events with
fewer people as we are career professionals dedicated to our craft and providing
the best service to our clients.
Perhaps there is a non-union contractor with lower up-front costs, but, a poorly-trained,
undependable workforce will compromise safety, risk damage to rental equipment and
do less while working more hours. The result will be a low-quality event which may
cost more. Furthermore, use of a low-cost, low-skill contractor places your entire
event at risk should complications during set up cause a late start to your performance,
or worst case, a cancelation.
Simply put, we are the most skilled, reliable, and productive workforce to staff
your event. When you add up the fact that Local 2 Stagehands are the best trained
and most productive workers in today’s entertainment industry, it’s no mistake that
hundreds of theatrical, stage, and production companies depend on Local 2 stagehands
to get their productions up on time, on budget, and with unsurpassed quality and
