These THREE 76-Year-Old PRINCIPLES Have Led to the Present HIGH QUALITY of STAGE DESIGN and CONSTRUCTION

1. uNever use or specify materials or equipment for which you would not spend your own money. And standardize so that service and replacement parts will be easily available through out the life of the stage."

2. "Never guess. Every detail, however small, must conform to sound engineering practice, with special emphasis on high safety

factor."

3. "The lifeblood of the theatre is Showmanship. Therefore we must always design for beauty and complete flexibility in dramatic

presentation."

The value of these three basic rules, established when J. R. Clancy founded this company 76 years ago, and religiously followed ever since. is proved by the thousands of Clancy stages which are still operating etiiciently after 20. 30 and 40 years.

We are frequently asked why our catalog shows so many seemingly obsolete items. The reason is obvious when you realize that one to 100 or more of these items are in daily use in more than 50.000 theatres. It is our responsibility to see that repair and replacement parts are always quickly available.

You will note that every piece of electrical equipment used in a Clancy design Carries the nameplate of a leading manufacturer. with t\'pe and serial



numbers shown to permit quick identification for serviceeusually available locally. In fact, we design and specify with the idea of making maximum use of local service facilities.

As another exampleeit is not by accident that the steel cable on a Clancy stage is so flexible and easy to handle.

These are little thingsabut they avoid trouble. And they result in years of safe. efhcient operation of the stage. Add to them Clancy's unequalled engineering, manufacturing and rigging facilities and you'll understand why Clancy is the world's leader in the heldewliy the Clancy name is associated with the stages of the largest theatres and audi. toriums throughout the world.
