Bringing Down the House!

Help me give my students these rolling islands so we can improve our house set up in the lobby for concessions and merchandise along with stools, register tills, and U-locks to help keep things secured.

My Project

This project is designed to help my theatre students class up our house, meaning concessions and merchandise. I would love for the 4 kitchen islands that are larger to store our merchandise, roses/charms, snacks, and beverages. I would love to use the smaller kitchen island with outlets to be our new base for our popcorn machine and have storage in that for all of the supplies needed for the popcorn machine. The tills will help us sort out cash better and more effectively so we can expedite the purchasing process and utilizing the drawers in the islands to be the till section so we can safely and securely keep that away from others. I want the U-locks to help keep the cabinets on the islands closed and locked up so we can store concessions and merchandise in them before and after a show. I would also like the folding stools to allow those working concessions to have someplace to sit and still be seen by patrons. My main goal is to upscale and class up our house for productions and make it easier and more efficient at setting up and closing down for each show night.
