Innovative black box theater risers for versatile seating needs

Innovative black box theater risers for versatile seating needs

The folding frame and innovative design allow you to easily change seating configurations based on the layout of the performance. Four people can install seating for 200 in about four hours. Taking it down takes even less time. The Upper Deck system is available with corner sections for better sight lines, improved traffic flow and greater seating capacity.


If you have a black box theatre, this is the perfect seating system for you.

Upper Deck Corner Sections

Now you can maximize seating and improve sight lines all with previously unusable space. These innovative sections extend Upper Deck value with an easy, straightforward setup that fits in any corner.

Move and Store Carts

Wenger has a well-earned reputation for simplifying installation and making storage more convenient. Our Move & Store Carts facilitate both ends of the job. Use them to roll out all Upper Deck Audience Seating components during setup. And when you’re ready to take it down, place each component on its dedicated cart as you strike the setup. Then just roll the carts into a corner or against the wall until you want to use them again. Additional high-density storage carts are available for all Upper Deck components.

For our black box theatre, our three seating needs were safety, flexibility, and comfort – in that priority. Without a significant investment of labor or time, the Upper Deck now enables us to do one show as an arena and the next as thrust. We’re finding the Upper Deck to be pretty tight and relatively quiet, such as when latecomers or other people are moving up and down the levels...Wenger’s customer service is exceptional.
