TOMCAT Equipment on Tour and at Home

TOMCAT helped Sir Paul McCartney's "US" tour with custom equipment and is keeping the lighting for Children's Theatre Company flexible, too.

For Sir Paul, TOMCAT worked with Upstaging, Inc. to build 25 custom light frames to hold a variety of instruments. Many custom hardware components were also fabricated for rigging equipment on the tour.

For Children's Theatre's new Cargill Stage in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the company provided equipment including 65 pieces of medium duty truss with asexual spigots so the truss sections can be configured in a variety of ways. An additional bit of flexibility is provided by the corner blocks designed with custom-made, spigoted truss attachment brackets. (TABS). The order also included 36 Columbus McKinnon 1-ton Model L chain hoists and 2 CM 500-pound Prostars.
