Stage Designs

A Warm Glow

Stephen Ellis at Keene Church in Keene, TX created this intimate design for a Jadon Lavik concert at the church. Since it was for a one-time event the stage elements needed to be cost effective and very portable. All of the materials except for the Par 36 cans were bought at Home Depot or Hobby Lobby.

The Towers for the lights were made of 4, 8 foot tall 1×1 spars with 1 foot plywood squares. The Par cans are mounted on to the 1 foot squares screwed on to the towers. To add some color Stephen replaced the flood bulbs with colored florescent party bulbs. The Tower lights were bought at Pier 1 but the same effect could be achieved with coroplast. All together the stage cost between $400 and $500. Set up time was 30 to 40 minutes and break down time was 20 minutes.

    Wow. This is what I’m looking for. We are a small church with a small stage and no budget for all the lighting I’m seeing in most of these designs. This will be perfect for us!!

    WOW – this is great. I was just looking for some comments on the “A Christmas Together” toru that started today at the Packinghouse. Jadon Lavik, Dominic Balli, Trevor Davis, The Pawn Shop Kings, TyroneWells and Evan Wickham – scheduled to tour up and down the Pacific coast from So Cal to Washington. They posted some pics of artists in rehearsal, but I love to see how the stage gets designed and set up. I saw them last year and I always admire the artists, staff and volunteers that pull something like this together. Thanks for the post.
