Theater Stage Flooring - Abraham Lincoln High School Testimonial

By Brett Hart Created: January, 2018 - Modified: October, 2023

Abraham Lincoln High School video production and theater teacher Kyle Gladden had a vision. His school, located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, California, had an unused auto shop that he felt would make a great black box theater that his video production class could use for its weekly student-directed web series ''Tigervision'' as well as theatrical performances.

After learning his grant for the black box theater transformation was approved, Gladden began his search for quality vendors to make the vision a reality and found Greatmats to be a perfect fit in the flooring aspect of the process.

At, Gladden found the perfect theatrical flooring surface of his black box theater in its Dance And Stage Pro marley vinyl rolls and rolls of 1/4 inch thick rubber that serve as a shock absorbing underlayment over the existing concrete.

''The flooring rolls have been amazing,'' Gladden said. ''They look great, feel good underfoot, and really make it 'look like a theater' for lack of a better description. We're really glad we found Greatmats!''

Abraham Lincoln High School is a comprehensive school in Lincoln Heights with a four grade enrollment of 1,000 students. With two magnet programs, Abraham Lincoln High School is known for its successful athletic and performing arts programs.
