Innovative Product Turns Multi-Purpose Room into a Theatre Instantly!
The SICO INSTA-THEATRE® concept is an innovative, full size performance theatre that folds conveniently into a pocket, or against a wall. Imagine transforming your cafeteria, gymnasium, or multi-purpose room into a professional theatre in minutes.
In its folded position, the SICO INSTA-THEATRE® consumes as little as 4.5' (1.4m) of depth. When unfolded, it provides a full, 24'-32' (7.31m-9.75m) wide by 16' (4.9m) deep performance stage inside the 17'-2" depth. Because it folds, it never permanently consumes the costly square footage of a permanent stage or theater.

Demonstration Video of INSTA-THEATRE®
Principal, Linda A. Bivans of the Alexander II Magnet School in Macon, Georgia recently found the perfect solution to transforming her school gymnasium into a full performance theatre. By installing a SICO INSTA-THEATRE® she instantly changed her gymnasium into a truly multi-purpose space, at a fraction of the cost of building in a permanent staging system.
"The students and staff at Alexander II Magnet School have really enjoyed using the SICO INSTA-THEATRE® . It is presently housed in our gymnasium, which serves our school well. The Theatre allows greater flexibility when conducting assemblies and performances. Our gym can be transformed to a beautiful theatre in little or no time to accommodate performances and then be disassembled immediately to return the space for our regular physical education program."
David Kinley, the Dealer Representative, that sold Linda her "turn-key" system, has now worked with SICO® to install six of these systems in the Macon area. "The schools love the flexibility that the SICO INSTA-THEATRE® offers. This product is designed perfectly for cafetorium and multi-purpose room environments."
In a magnet school situation this product can open up multiple performance spaces. "I have been fortunate to have served two schools with the SICO INSTA-THEATRE® ," said Principal Bivens. "The portability of the theatre allows the staff to create a stage in more than one area of the building. I highly recommend this product to schools who have an interest in conserving space."
