From Our Client

“We recently had a brand new lighting desk installed in our Studio by Henley Theatre Services. They have gone above and beyond to help provide us with training and have also been available on Facetime to help us use the board in our Main Hall. Every person I have dealt with has been highly professional, solution focused, patient and helpful. I would recommend their services without reservation.”
