He was hired as an on-call Rigger at "Viva Elvis" and after working for a year, he was hired to tour with “Corteo” through Europe. Our series, "Inside the Lives of Entertainment Riggers" continues as Trevor shares how he entered the rigging industry and his fascinating adventures along the way.

Another nutty talented person. Tara is a VERY accomplished stage manager and all around director of people. She's consistently holding down a ton of stellar jobs/projects including helping run @kbrdproductions .
We are extremely fortunate to have her on our team and thankful she squeezes us into her crazy schedule. Tara has worked on some great projects like the #westworld booth @sxsw in 2018 (which btw WON an Emmy) yeah she's that dope. Alongside that she coordinates a few things @thequeenmary and many other projects.
Also this is one of the hardest working, most dedicated people we know. She's been keeping the rest of us on track since high school haha.
If you want to hire her...good luck she is in high demand.
Drop a comment and wash out for the last 2!
Last week I completed my first season on a major production at The Regent Theatre as Stage Manager!
When I was 5 years old I saw my first ever show at the Regent; The Wizard of Oz starring Niki Webster. 5 year old Will wouldn’t have believed that at the age of 22 he’d be working in that same theatre!
It’s been a great season with the Melbourne Opera! It’s been a busy couple of weeks (I also started full-time Music Theatre at PSA but that’s another story). I feel very lucky to get to do what I love.
I love our tags. I love that they tell you what show your bag is from so you can always remember. I love that they are handwritten by the women who made them. I love that they give you an inventory number that is all our own. Your bag is as unique as you are, as unique as the person who made it. No two bags are the same, and that is what makes them special. 💙 PC: @marqwallsnyc#scenerybags

so full of love + yet still fighting darkness. 🥀 though, still reminding myself daily who I am, what i’ve accomplished + what’s still left to do.
Overture, curtains, lights!
This is it, the night of nights!
No more rehearsing and nursing a part,
We know every part by heart!
Overture, curtains, lights!
This is it, you'll hit the heights!
And oh what heights we'll hit,
On with the show this is it!
