Storage For Theatre Props – Whether you run an amateur theatre or you are part of a well established theatre community that regularly produces professional plays and musicals, you probably know what it’s like to not be able to find the props you need in a disorganized prop room. Here are some tips to help you store props and organize them so they can always be found.
First, choose some sturdy shelving units. Here at UK Shelving, we offer a variety of economy shelving for all kinds of storage needs. Our quick assembly economy shelving system is great for organizing all kinds of props and stage pieces.
It’s easy to set up as it doesn’t use bolts-everything just slots into place. There are five, sturdy chipboard shelves. This shelving unit can be delivered to you free of charge.
Once you’ve chosen some shelves and set them up in your prop room, you can begin the task of organizing the props, costumes, stage pieces, set pieces, etc.
You may want to purchase some large plastic tubs or wicker baskets for storing small items like props. You can label each container either by prop type (such as “tableware” or “hats”), or you could label them by the play they are going to be used in for easy access during rehearsals.
Prop storage doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Just browse through the many great shelves we have available and choose something that’s right for you. For more information, or for assistance in choosing, please feel free to ring us on: 01268 515247, or contact us via the online form.
