The Amazing Spiderstage

Jon Morris from Harvest Time in Fort Smith, Arkansas brings us this amazing spiderstage in all its tangled goodness.

They purchased some pre-manufactured rope webs from Brian Bruderer ( They come in 50′, 33′, and 20′ and even smaller. They used 2 sticks of 14′ truss and 2 sticks of 10′ truss to support the webs.

They created the giant spider to the right of the pastor from PVC pipe, 90 and 45 degree joints, black fabric, spray paint, a few pillows and 2 red mailbox reflectors. They did this “Entangled” series during Halloween when there are tons of fake spiderwebs available, so they used the smaller stuff in they foyers and on the outsides of the stage.

The extra stage goodies they used for this set were the towers and panels. They were created from 2×4 frames wrapped with Rose Brand stretch fabric stapled to the back of the frames. The towers were 20′, 24′, and 16′ tall gridded with other 2×4’s to break of the columns. Each column section had an American DJ LED megabar on top and bottom and the grids just had one bar on the floor.

  4. Seems like it might have been a little weird worshiping by a huge spider, but it looks awesome. How did you make the panels?

      Hey Ryan. Got this response from Jon:
      They are 2×4 frames. Built each side of the panel seperate and fastened together in the middle by door hinges for folding and transportation. the gaps between sections is 4′ and they stand 16′, 20′ and 24′ tall.
      we fastened them to the stage from the back side with angle bracing for support.

      The grids are 2×2 just screwed together in a back and forth framing fashion.
