For traveling shows, we offer a collection of sturdy portable stages and risers, with or without carpeting. All stages and risers are constructed from quality materials and designed to support large casts through years of performances. With customer satisfaction as our top priority, Hertz Furniture offers extended warranties.
Should I get a stage or risers?
Whether for school plays, performances or graduation ceremonies, stages and risers take you to the next level of professionalism. Without them, it's just not the same. But not all stages and risers are created equal. There can be significant differences that will influence which stage or riser you choose for your event.
The first thing you need to consider is the layout of your auditorium. Are the seats on an incline, or on a flat plane? If they're on an incline, then you know that your audience will be able to see what's happening onstage no matter how far away the seats may be. If it's set up on a flat plane, then you'll have to invest a lot more thought into the best way to set up your performance so that as much of the audience as possible has an optimal view.
The second thing you need to consider is – what kind of performances will you be dealing with? Do you put on yearly plays or musicals, or just ceremonial performances like graduations? What about a school choir? Does your band perform exclusively at school events like sports games, or do they hold concerts as well? That will help you establish priorities as to which stages and risers you really need.
What kind of risers should I get?
For choral productions or graduation ceremonies, choir risers are the best way to provide the clearest view to the greatest number of people. Although they might look more sophisticated, straight risers provide more visibility than do semi-circular ones. When you want to make sure that the parents and family members in the audience can see their loved ones onstage, traditional choral risers are the way to go.
What kind of stage is good for school plays?
If plays, musicals and other onstage performances are a focal part of your school's extracurricular program, you are going to need a good-quality stage. Fortunately, there are a number of excellent portable stages out there. Manufacturers like AmTab and National Public Seating have a huge selection of stages in a wide variety of sizes and materials.
Need to configure your stage by yourself? Try the TransFold portable stage series by Midwest. These come complete with portable platforms, guardrails, steps with handrails and even stage skirting. The advantage to portable stages is obvious: they can be set up anywhere, anytime, and they store quite easily.
What is the difference between band risers and choir risers?
Do you have an active school orchestra? Then band risers are a must. Like portable stages, these come in a wide range of sizes and configurations, many of which can be combined to create the ideal riser for your particular school. Unlike choir risers which are made for standing musicians, band risers are wide enough for chairs so your musicians can sit. Band risers can be stored and used strictly for concerts and performances, or they can be used on a regular basis in your music rehearsal room and then moved to the performance venue as needed.
Choosing the right stage, choral or band riser is not an easy task. The Design Center team at Hertz Furniture will be happy to help you by walking you through the planning process so that you get it right the first time. Having trouble with furniture financing?

No matter what kind of tables you are looking for, Midwest has great options for the educational, religious or professional setting. Feel free to choose the training tables, portable risers and plastic chairs you need. Hertz Furniture is proud to bring you these exceptional items at great prices.
Furniture from Midwest Folding Products will come in handy in just about any room. If you are looking for folding tables and banquet tables for your social hall, you have come to the right place. Whether you want rectangular or round tables, you can choose from a number of sizes and styles. If you use the same space to host many events, you might want to order a number of different shapes so you can mix and match or create different configurations for various purposes.
Setting up many tables of different sizes can put quite a strain on custodians and volunteers. To save time and keep your tables in great condition, purchase some convenient table carts. With table trucks, you can easily roll multiple heavy tables into position, and keep them stored efficiently in one space.
Midwest tables are also useful in educational settings. When you are furnishing a lunchroom, functional cafeteria tables are essential. Our models come in many different styles with a variety of seating options. Choose between bench tables, stools and chairs to get the configuration that is best for your students. And while you?re at it, why not add in some durable classroom tables.
Appropriate computer furniture is necessary in every modern school and company. When you have valuable electronic equipment that is used on a regular basis, you want to make sure that it is properly-supported. Sturdy computer tables are useful to have in both a school computer lab and a business environment. If you need furniture for occasional training or professional days, we also have a selection of seminar and training tables. Cantilever legs will give participants more open leg room so they can sit comfortably during sessions.
Moving on to the gymnasium or multipurpose room, you can transform any area into an attractive performance space with portable stages and risers. With a number of shapes, sizes and configurations, anyone can find the right arrangement for a particular space. These units can be ordered individually or in sets. Smaller sections can be ganged together to create an original arrangement for every performance. This flexibility is also convenient if you need stages for churches. To ensure that performers, musicians and presenters can get up on stage safely, purchase some sturdy stage steps.
Having the performance space arranged is the first step toward creating a venue. If your portable risers will be holding a standing chorus or orchestra, you will also require some additional equipment. Midwest has user-friendly music furniture which can be used during performances or practices. Height-adjustable music stands will help amateurs, students or professionals stay on tune.
Hertz Furniture is proud to offer you a wonderful line of versatile furniture from Midwest Folding Products. Whether you are looking for one item or furnishing an entire building, you can find a great selection of models that will continue to serve your institution well for many years to come.
