J. M. Fox Associates, Inc. has just completed a New E-commerce Website design for Avista Custom Theatrical Services, LLC. Norristown, PAA properties master who knows her business can find things quickly in a city she is familiar with, and she doesn’t spin her wheels unnecessarily searching.” The Theater Props HandbookJennifer Burkhart and Amanda Hatch are the team that productions large and small turn to for the most diverse selection of props and custom work in the Philadelphia area. They started Avista Custom Theatrical Services more than a decade ago and built a business that focuses on customer service and quality craftsmanship.
After purchasing The Prop Shop when founder Gene Frank decided to retire from the business, the "girls" as they were known to Gene steadily increased the stock from 6,000 square feet to a whopping 10,000 square feet. After propping shows professionally for 20 years, they have a good base of knowledge of what a production might need and are committed to increasing their stock to reflect those needs.
In addition to shopping for theater for 20 years, they are pros at turning trash to prop treasure. From refinishing furniture frames to reupholstering boring pieces, they are able to keep pricing reasonable by putting sweat equity into the trash picked items and turn them into gems for the stage.
While propping requires a jack-of-all-trade mentality, the girls have separate skill sets that compliment each other perfectly. Amanda is a props person who paints while Jen is a props person who sews. Combined they can handle most of what a production needs.
