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?

Hertz Furniture is proud to bring you wonderful temporary and permanent furniture solutions in a variety of categories. With AmTab stages and risers, you get the same quality and durability in a social hall, auditorium or gym. These supportive and appealing performance platforms will help any budding musicians shine.
Sturdy tables come in a number of different styles to fit a variety of purposes. AmTab cafeteria tables are designed with the needs of a busy school eating area in mind. They are available in circular and rectangular configurations with or without attached seating. A variety of surface and edge-banding materials enable any school to enjoy these sturdy tables, no matter what their budget is.
Lunchroom tables come with either stools or benches, so each school can determine which option is better for their student body. They lock in the upright folded position for compact storage. For easy mobility, they roll into position on strong casters, so setting up or rearranging the cafeteria is a breeze.
Any venue where banquets or celebrations take place requires some sturdy folding tables. Foldable tables are ideal for temporary use because they are stable when they are set up, yet they can easily be folded up for storage. We have round folding tables and rectangular folding tables in a selection of sizes so every venue can choose the space arrangement that looks the best in a particular space and provides the desired seating capacity.
Folding tables are often used as banquet tables. They can be arranged just about anywhere, and offer a great space for formal events. With some elegant tablecloths, napkins and place settings, no one will even know that there is a folding table underneath. Rather than spending many hours carrying heavy furniture into the social hall, you can set up banquet tables in a matter of minutes while achieving a stately appearance that is worthy of an awards dinner or annual holiday party.
In an office or school setting where there are often training sessions or professional days, it is helpful to have some dependable seminar tables. Unlike regular tables, training tables are designed for people to sit on one side so everyone can face the speaker at the front of the room. AmTab seminar tables have cantilever legs which provide maximum legroom. They are available in a huge selection of tabletop colors and sizes, so you can have great temporary workspaces in any room.
Whenever you have a significant number of folding tables, you need an easy way to move them around. Table carts are designed for smooth transport requiring a minimum of labor and effort. When choosing table dollies, it is important to make sure that they fit the shapes and sizes of the tables that need to be transported.
You can enjoy AmTab quality in your performance spaces as well. AmTab's portable stages are designed for easy arrangement and tough support. They can be setup in a variety of configurations to transform a regular room into an auditorium. Easy storage makes these stages convenient at all times. To ensure safety, guard rails should be purchased for the sides of the stage that will not be directly against a wall.
Whether you have a choir, band or orchestra, you will need an appropriate place for musicians to sit or stand during performances. When everyone is lined up on the stage, it can be difficult to make sure that all members and participants are visible to the audience and conductor. With band risers or choir risers you can ensure that all student musicians are visible to their adoring family members and fans. It is important to determine whether you will be using portable risers for seated or standing musicians because they come in varying widths.
Whether you are bringing music into the educational environment or hosting a professional-development seminar, AmTab furniture will serve your institution well. With models that are designed for easy transport and arrangement, you won't have to work too hard to get a space setup. From storage to configuration and beyond, AmTab tables and stages will stay in great shape through many events and occasions.
