Overstage machinery

What is overstage machinery?

Overstage machinery is that part of the machinery that is stored away above the stage, often in a machine room or on top of a grid floor and over 20 meters high in the fly tower. Above the stage, winches provide the power for the fly bar system. Our winches each have similar power to a 14-person-elevator! On average, each stage holds about 50 fly bars, and therefore needs 50 winches.
