Showforce rolled out the red carpet, literally, for the stars of this year’s Evening Standard Theatre Awards when it provided event crew to the annual awards ceremony.
Shorty Productions, the live event production specialist, called on Showforce to perform a leading role in the evening celebration, which took place at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane.
In total, 93 crew members took to the stage – and venue and trucks – and played a major part in the production.
Over the course of four days, Showforce’s team of skilled event crew racked up 640 man hours and performed a number of tasks, including unloading trucks, moving kit and furniture, installing lighting and rigging, rolling out the red carpet, building the stage and working on the show calls.
This event played to many of Showforce’s strengths; the Evening Standard Theatre Awards recognises the outstanding achievements of everyone that works in London theatre. The company is incredibly experienced at providing event crew to West End shows and glamorous award ceremonies, as well as working in heritage buildings.
This is not the first time that Showforce has supplied event crew to the annual awards ceremony so it was really proud to have been asked back once again and to assist with an important night in the theatre industry’s calendar.
