Stagehands & Teamsters
All rigging must be performed by a local union rigger. General practice is for stagehands to do construction, (including carpentry, props, displays) dismantling of exhibits not done by exhibitors, operations of all theatrical lighting and sound in the Music Hall, including spotlights. Any loading/unloading and delivering by use of forklift must be done by a local teamster. Persons associated with events may use their own dolly, hand cart or hand-carry items in the facility. The Music Hall requires the use of stagehands and teamsters for events.
