75 years ago, my grandfather started Grand Stage. Since then our family has striven to provide the tools and services required to realize brilliant designs and create immersive worlds. From the halls of academia to the intimacy of live theatre and the permanence of architectural design, we aim to provide the knowledge, products, technology, and man-power needed to supply, produce, and install your dreams. With the addition of Chicago Spotlight in 2015 we have increased our product lines, added to our skill sets, and reorganized our customer service from the top down. If you have any questions, concerns, or compliments please don't hesitate to reach out to either Matt Winstead or myself.
President, Grand Stage Company
Grand Stage Company was founded in 1947 to provide quality lighting equipment to the theatrical community of the Midwest. In the past 75 years, we have expanded our product range to include lighting consumables, scenic materials, special FX, theatrical rigging and drapery. Since its beginning, Grand Stage has been a family-owned and operated business continuing into its fourth generation. With the addition of Art Drapery Studios in 1994 and Chicago Spotlight in 2015, we have continued developing our product offerings and services, and are even better suited to meet the needs of our customers. If there is anything you need for your show, let us know.
