Facility Services - Theatrical Services Department
If you're planning to use staging, special lighting, scenery, rigging, or have technically complex sessions, general sessions, keynotes, or other high-production functions, our Theatrical Services staff can be an important part of your planning and performance process.
Theatrical Services can provide a wide array of equipment as well as Stagehand onboarding/payroll services for your production and breakout needs. Please contact The Moscone Center's Theatrical Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
If your event includes a general session or a large meeting that utilizes staging, lighting, large-scale video and sound reinforcement, or a major theatrical presentation, you need to plan on including our House Head as part of your team.
Regardless of whom you select as your audio visual supplier or your production company, the facility’s House Head must be utilized. The Moscone House Head is appointed by the facility to assist you and the IATSE Local 16 crews to install, operate, and dismantle any large production.
The Moscone House Head acts as the union-required shop steward for the crew, eliminates the need for a redundant shop steward hired from the union, and offers a thorough understanding of jurisdictional requirements. The House Head is an experienced technician who understands our building systems and has a responsibility for using them correctly and efficiently. Labor charges for this position will be posted to the final settlement at the conclusion of the event. Please contact The Moscone Center's Theatrical Services Department at email@example.com for hourly rates and additional information.
