Located in the heart of the country, Music Theatre Wichita has been producing shows for 49 years and compiled a number of professionally-built props, costumes, and sets for many popular Broadway shows that we have rented nationwide.* A complete list of shows available can be found in the Show Inventory Tab listed A-Z. Show information is constantly being updated, so if there’s a particular image you’re looking for, drop us a note.
Our main stage that we build for is a 2,100 seat house with a double purchase fly system that has 41 line sets including dedicated electrics. The stage opening is 58' wide by 29' tall, we typically portal this down to 44'x21'6". The stage is 48' deep and has an additional 500 sq Ft of wing space on both stage left and right. Some shows are built needing additional offstage space which we use an adjacent auxiliary space for storage (items such as the Ship from Little Mermaid).
The bulk of our inventory has been built over the 49-year history of Music Theatre Wichita's summer productions. As we have grown so has our attention to detail and the high quality that we strive for in all areas of production. Our scenery is built to try and withstand as many repeat productions as possible. We typically muslin cover all our hard scenery and ship on trucking casters when possible to help protect the package in transit. Costumes ship in ether gondolas or hampers depending on the piece and package and are checked in before and after each rental. Properties will usually ride in scenic units to save space on the truck pack, some road boxes are available for several packages.
*MTWRentals is happy to rent full packages (sets-costumes-props-drops-projections) as well as separate components such as scenery only, costumes only, and select prop packages. However, other than scenic backdrops, MTWRentals is not able to rent individual items (individual props, costumes, or scenic units).
