When working in the performing arts we face all kinds of challenges: water onstage, fire, someone jumping off the set, snow... Well our COSI FAN TUTTE (you have heard it here first!!!) stage deck is covered in sand. Imagine the challenges that it entails: how do we keep it clean? how do we control it from not getting everywhere? etc

Well it has been decided that everyone who walks on the sand, except singers, has to wear booties to keep it clean. Here is a peek into our tech process with some of our team members rocking out the booties!!!

An infinite amount of gorgeous sand
