• Deads

    Deads, or dead cases, often refers to the rolling cases that held lighting, audio, backline, or other related gear and are now empty – or “dead” – and need to be staged somewhere nearby for easy access on load out.   It’s always a good idea to find out how much space production companies will need for their deads and ensure you’ve got room to place them somewhere – and in some municipalities, placing them under the stage is not allowed.
