    …let there be
    Lighting Systems!

    Our reputation and relationships in performing arts were opening doors across the southeast. Our ability to reliably self-perform design and integration led to projects such as Carolina Opry, Dixie Jubilee, Gatlin Bros. Theater, Alabama Theater, Charleston Music Hall, Southern Country Nights, Dollywood Celebrity Theater, Hershey Park Music Box Theater, Hard Rock Amphitheater, and Elvis Presley’s Memphis. It was a bright chapter in the story of Stage Front!

    1994 - 

    Nice Smile

    The Medical College of Georgia Dental School called… and so we designed our first pre-clinical simulation laboratory AV solution. Little did we know of the opportunities that lie ahead! Fast forward 25 years and Stage Front has designed 50+ dental schools throughout the United States, Canada and Central America. And yes… we’re still smiling!

  • 2005
