Only you can turn the stage from a dark, silent floor to a dazzling scene. But if you can't find the right costume, prop or setpiece, microphone or lights — how will you do it? You don't want to make or buy everything again. In this session, you will see the benefits of creating an inventory of all your properties. This presentation will help you learn what you need, write a plan, set a budget, create a shopping list and timeline for starting your inventory project. Whether you have thousands of costumes, hundreds of pieces of sound equipment, a warehouse of furniture or the world's large gobo collection — creating and maintaining an inventory will help you.
