    Rental Help

    Great thanks for the help. I gave last year's lighting designer a call and he recommended Starlite Productions in Cherry Hill. Know anything about them? I'll give them and mainlight a call and see what we can work out. I really like mainlight's prices.

    Help!! Front Lighting only!!!
