Items included in the garage sale include: conventional and moving lights, cut fabrics, draperies, ropes and handlines, rigging equipment, parts and fixture accessories.

Since its beginning, Grand Stage has been a family owned and operated business continuing into its fourth generation. We look forward to developing our product offerings and services to better suit our customers needs. If there is anything you need for your show, let us know.
