Fly Tower

A fly tower is a part of a theatre above the stage where scenery in the form of gauzes, cloths and flats are stored for each performance and 'flown in' when needed. Stage lighting rigged on lighting pipes are often also "flown in", giving lighting designers much more scope for flexible lighting designs. The fly tower is only used for storing scenery and rigging necessary for the current performance due to the possible safety implications of having huge weights suspended over actors' heads.
Sometimes referred to as; Fly space, or simply, "The Flys"
