Years in the rigging business
Elks opera house
One of our beginning projects for the Elk’s Opera House was installing a new fire curtain in a 100+ year old historical theatre with a wood grid. The building was a very advanced for its time and the only remaining hemp house in Arizona. The scope of the work entailed modifying a couple of the line sets and installing the new fire curtain while maintaining the historical integrity of the building.
We have done many projects at this location, but our most memorable is the complete renovation taking the House back 100 years with a modern flare and using the detail from the 100 year old fire curtain to create the new hand painted Grand Drape that is hanging today.
This special project for Symphony Hall was to motorize the main act curtain on the rail and not impede the operation of the line sets upstage or downstage. This scope of work entailed installing a custom variable speed motor with a programmable limits for more than 90 feet of travel, to raise and lower the main act curtain and train personnel on how to program the unit for different looks for the various shows.
The Christmas tree was decorated with lights and garland stretching 40’ into the air. This was the start of the season because the tree was always installed just prior to Thanksgiving. We looked forward to this fun event for many years.
We’ve Been Rigging For Over 30 Years
Our company was established over 25 years ago by Dana Morrell, a highly experience rigging professional. He wanted to offer a wider choice of services to meet the theatre industry needs and create a safer working environment for those who use the theatre.

“Working with E & M Rigging is an absolute pleasure. Connie and her team are true experts in the field. When we had a fire marshal visit our property, I was able to go to Connie who had kept records from years and years ago on whether or not a certain curtain in one of my locations was in fact flame retardant. You can’t find that kind of service. In addition when I need something new, she is always willing to come out personally and survey what I’m looking for, and provide me her valuable time, insight and advice. The quality of their products, and the level of their service is why I have been a long-time customer, and will continue to be a customer, and will be for a long time to come.”
