So, our auditorium has a painted black wood floor for the stage, which is fine for theatre (except it needs a new coat of paint). BUT, the apron is a stained, decorative wood that is extremely glossy and terrible for lighting.
Now, since the auditorium is used for meetings, events, and such, the school will not paint over it, because it looks very nice. We are looking at purchasing some sort of "temporary" stage floor that can be rolled out over the glossy floor for performances. Does anyone know of a solution that can easily be set up and removed that is matte black? Most likely only props and actors will be on it, but it should be able to possibly hold up to flats and such.
That is a picture of our auditorium, with a set blocking the view of the normal stage floor. The apron is curved, so the floor will need to be custom cut. The stairs do not need to be covered, necessarily.
Thanks for the help!
EDIT: Not only will this look better for theatre, but it will help protect the nice floor.
