Working under severe weather conditions the week of the inauguration, the GMP team implemented the design plan, which offered a modern take on the traditional Tennessee flag as the inspiration. Another component of the design was to create a look that built upward starting at the front of the stage with a tri-star custom stage wrap, up to a sleek lectern with the state seal, a three-tiered seating configuration, a backdrop behind the stage, and a “waving” flag, all framed by the Tennessee State Capitol.
The photos below show the stage set from a few different angles, including an aerial shot taken from atop the First Tennessee building. In addition to the Inauguration, GMP provided the décor for the Inaugural Ball, held at Gaylord Opryland. GMP would like to thank the Haslam Inaugural 2011 team for allowing us the opportunity to participate in this historical event.

New-builds are full of excitement, long hours, waiting for shipments to arrive, and construction challenges. We’ve experienced all that with the Marina. After days of patient waiting, last night we had sound, lights, costumes, and the band for the first time since arriving on January 3rd. We’re finally making great progress and our 6 new productions are coming to life! This is our sixth new-build, so we’re accustomed to the stress and chaos. Because as we’ve seen in past, the end result is worth it! Here are a few shots from the past 2 days.
This is the theater still under construction. Wide aisles and comfortable seating will make entertainment productions even more enjoyable for guests!
