News, International News


Leading rigging and technical solutions supplier Unusual Rigging put its own Oompa Loompa's into action last week, helping facilitate the installation of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory set in London's Theatre Royal.

Unusual Rigging’s Simon Stone and Simon Tiernan worked alongside Production Manager Patrick Molony to carry out the extensive works on the weight capacity of the Theatre Royal. All this to accommodate the significant quantity of scenery and technical equipment that comprises Mark Thompson’s dynamic set design for Sam Mendes’ production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

“The whole thing was run superbly well," comments production manager Patrick Malony.
"The backup that we received from AJ at the office and from his onsite team led was superb, I really don’t think that any other company could have accomplished what Unusual did on Charlie when it came to dealing with an historic venue, a restricted time frame and with such grace.”
