Big Stage on a Small Stage

Jon McKinley brings us this stage design for their church of 50!

They wanted to modernize their stage, but felt discouraged because they are a small church. The sanctuary can seat right around 120, but they only have around 50 in attendance. They had a very tight budget, but were able to buy the materials for under $100 (excluding a few LED lights and projector).

They created the pillars from white fabric purchased at a local fabric store. The side screens were made from luan wood purchased from Lowe’s at $3/sheet. They got it cut for free from the store then painted them white. The stage was painted black and paper lanterns hung for some flavor.

They added a 2700 lumen projector to “fill” the back wall. Great job!

Bonus resource: They purchased their LED lights from a company in China. They were able to purchase 4 LED Par64 for $289. They aren’t brand names but are great for small budgets.
