Work Light Productions

Work Light Productions is a live entertainment production company that creates original shows and theatrical tours of Broadway productions.


Flys, not flies, refer to the permanent weighted batten systems in theatrical venues that are used to raise and lower scenery and electrics on stage. To fly something in or out is to raise or lower an object on deck via this system. Many theaters have made the conversion to automated flys that use motors or chain hoists, but manual structures are still the most prevalently used.


If tiptoeing across a 5-inch piece of steel 85 feet in the air towing 40 pounds of rope, cable and chain behind you sounds like a great day at the office, then perhaps you were born to be a rigger.
