"THAT'S THE ULTIMATE JOY OF WORKING IN THE THEATRE. EACH ARTIST BRINGS SOMETHING TO THE TABLE, AND THE FINISHED PRODUCTION BECOMES SOMETHING GREATER THAN THE SUM OF ITS PARTS" - Joseph Forbes
We create backdrops and sculptures in our 15,000 sq. foot studio located in Newburgh. NY, as well as painting, built scenery for multiple production companies across the Tri-State area. Specializing in theatrical painting, we also work with multiple production shops in the Northeast painting the sets and installations they construct for film, television, and specialty venues. Be it softgoods, sculpture, scenery, onsite work calls, or murals, we have the crew to fit your needs. The company has painted more than 300 Broadway productions, including such shows as Carousel, School of Rock, Dirty Dancing, Spongebob and The Bands Visit. Joe is not only the founder of SAS, but the hands-on Charge Artist that pushes his team to set the bar higher. Passionate about what he does, and more to the point, about passing that information on, Forbes strives to make a better product, passing the craft down to future generations.
