Today's Lesson: Rigging and Fly-Rails

In preparation for "Seussical", students in the Teenage Drama Workshop's design-tech program got a hands-on lesson in safely rigging set pieces and proper use of the fly-rail system when teacher Caroline Law had them rig up a giant set piece that will fly-in during the show.

Once the rigging got the all-clear from CSUN staff, TADW students and staff worked together to lift it into position where it will be painted for the show.

"Not a lot of students this age get to work on rigging," Law said. "This was a really great experience for our kids today."
