Winston-Salem, NC / Custom Truss Tower Stage with Printed Softgoods

Mountain Productions is proud to have staged Wake Forest University’s graduation ceremonies for the past two years. Wake Forest’s commencement takes place outdoors in front of the beautiful Wake Chapel that is an integral part of the overall event visual and theme.


The main central stage is a truss tower system with a Thomas truss roof grid and a peaked roof that was adorned with a scenic panel of Wake Forest’s college crest. Flanking the main stage were two side stages with multi-tiered decking and large video screens. ADA access ramps were built for stage access on the downstage edge. Custom designed softgood panels were printed and hung to the structures to complete the stage look. A large mesh backwall provided a creative see-through panel for Wake Chapel’s front pillars to peak through.
