Our Mission
Almost 70 years ago, my grandfather started Grand Stage. Since then our family has striven to provide the tools and services required to realize brilliant designs and create immersive worlds. From the halls of academia to the intimacy of live theatre and the permanence of architectural design, we aim to provide the knowledge, products, technology, and man-power needed to supply, produce, and install your dreams. With the addition of Chicago Spotlight in 2015 we have increased our product lines, added to our skill sets, and reorganized our customer service from the top down. If you have any questions, concerns, or compliments please don't hesitate to reach out to either Matt Winstead or myself.

About Us
Grand Stage Company was founded in 1947 to provide quality lighting equipment to the theatrical community of the Midwest. Since then we have been expanding our product range to include lighting consumables, scenic materials, special FX, and with the addition of Art Drapery Studios in 1994 we added theatrical rigging and drapery. Since its beginning, Grand Stage has been a family owned and operated business continuing into its fourth generation. We look forward to developing our product offerings and services to better suit our customers needs. Chicago Spotlight has grown over the last 30 years from a firm specializing in follow spot service and rental into a turn-key systems integrator of the latest in stage lighting and rigging equipment. Known for its 24-hour emergency pager Chicago Spotlight remains focused on customer satisfaction. If there is anything you need for your show, let us know.
