Fly System

The Fly Rail is located stage left at stage level, with a weight-loading gallery accessible also from stage left via stairs. The system is a Single Purchase counterweight type, consisting of 46 rails with individual arbor capacity of 700 pounds. Among the rails are 5 electrics, 3 full-width travelers, 4 borders and 4 legs permanently secured and several others which have drops on them that cannot readily be moved. Consistory Stage personnel will make every effort to comply with requests for rails and space but the security of old and delicate drops is of concern and will not be compromised. See below for fly system information.

House Goods

The Proscenium Curtain is a rich red velvet and is very heavy. A motor/drum on stage left controls this curtain. In addition, there are two black velour travelers and a tan traveler (Oleo). These cannot be moved from rail to rail. Trimming can be done with four (4) pairs of black/gold velour legs and four (4) black teasers.

Other Drapery: Other drapes, drops, scrims, cycs, etc. can be rented from the customary supply houses and shipped to our location. The Scottish Rite will not be responsible for freight or other charges for any item. The Scottish Rite does have a limited number of drops/scrims that may be rented for a nominal fee if needed. A list of drops is available from the stage manager.
