Includes creation of lighting plot (diagram) and refocusing of lighting fixtures for a general plot or a specific production.




Design (set, props, lighting, costumes)

Includes design meetings, comprehensive design/build plans (if necessary), and periodic check-ins during the building process.  We can also implement the design for you for additional costs.




Highwood can also build your sets, props, and costumes, or work with your students to build it!  If you don’t contract with Highwood to design a technical element, you are still welcome to have us build a particular prop or set piece (rates depend on build-time and materials).


Purchasing Equipment

Why purchase through Highwood?  Highwood is a non-profit organization and is not a reseller of equipment.  We have relationships with many companies who support us and offer us and our school partners the best rates possible.  Most schools save 20-30% by purchasing equipment, instruments, or other supplies through Highwood.

Transportation/Shipping - 7% to 10% of total order (depending on size of equipment purchased)

Note: unless we are separately contracted to install equipment, we will deliver your equipment to your school, but will not set it up.  Particular large (truck only) items may carry an additional transportation fee.

Installation - generally a flat installation charge depending on the scope of work.  This can range from hanging a light or hooking up wireless microphones, to installing full sound systems and hanging intelligent lights.

Note: some installations require special approval (including any electrical or structural work) from your local county school system; we can help with the process, though cannot complete the electrical/structural work ourselves. In most cases, we work with your local county school system or an outside authorized contractor to complete the electrical/structural work, then come in and complete our end of the installation.

Items we construct/source for you can always be picked up from Highwood for free.  If we deliver your items, there is fee of $1.50 per mile from Highwood.

Renting Equipment

Why rent through Highwood?  Highwood offers the lowest rental rates around, and each rental includes designing based on your needs, and set-up/take-down of the equipment.  We’re also trained professionals who can recommend the best equipment depending on your event (theatre performance, dance concert, orchestra recital, school dance, school auction, and more).  We’re on call if anything happens to the equipment during your rental, and can often fulfil last-minute rentals!  And, of course, Highwood can always provide technicians to run equipment for your event or performance.
