Vendors and Suppliers

A somewhat brief but hopefully useful list of local suppliers for stage supplies and equipment. NB - the world of equipment supply and rental is complicated, and often confusing. Many students can end up paying far more than they may have to because they negotiated their rentals directly. Even if the OFA or the HRDC isn't financing your show directly you should still contact the appropriate staff members to discuss your options. The ability to get a good price and service is often dependent on who you know, and the chances are the OFA staff or Michael Griggs know more people than you.
