Firm Rigs Saudi Arabia University Theatres

When Princess Nora bint Abdulrahman University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, opens its campus to students early in 2012, its three theatres will be equipped with J. R. Clancy, Inc. rigging systems.

Within what will be the world's largest university for women is a theatre complex with a 2,500-seat performance hall, a 700-seat drama theatre, and a black box theatre for lectures and small productions. While each theater has unique requirements, the contractor sought a single, proven supplier that could manufacture the complete package of under- and over-stage rigging for all three venues. Clancy's broad equipment portfolio and international experience in managing projects of the largest scale earned the company this project.

More information about J. R. Clancy is available at, or at 315-451-3440.
