Pyrotechnics and Special Effects: Why you Should Use Them in Your Next Performance

The way a performance can captivate, entertain, and create memories that last a lifetime has long inspired us at Stage Electrics to provide the range of products and services we offer our customers. 

One of the questions we're often asked is, "How can I take my show to the next level?" 

One of the common answers to that question is, incorporating theatrical pyrotechnics and special effects into your event, performance or show.

The connection between those on stage and the audience is a key factor in distinguishing a good performance from a great one. Adding pyrotechnics and special effects to a performance can strengthen the connection between performer and spectator. The dazzling display of lights, controlled explosions, and sound effects can evoke powerful emotions, intensify a sense of suspense, or heighten the dramatic impact of the performance. In turn, elevating the production values of an event, gig or show.

If you're looking to enhance the message you're trying to convey on stage, want to bring a fantasy world to life or create a sense of escapism from the norm for your audience, incorporating pyrotechnics and special effects should be at the top of your list. But where should you start? Here are three ideas to get you started:


  • Add a bang, flash of colour or flames to your performance with professional theatre pyro from Le Maitre.


  • Create suspense, mystery, intrigue, and an atmosphere like no other with theatrical effects such as dry ice, fog, smoke, and haze. Our Online Store includes low smoke, fog, smoke and haze fluids, and industry-leading machines to create a memorable experience for your audience.


  • Add confetti and glitter to make sure your performance ends with a bang. We stock confetti, glitter, streamers and cannons that will leave audiences talking about your show long after it has finished.

Pyrotechnics and special effects can unquestionably add a "wow factor" to your next event, gig, performance or show. But their use can also carry a significant risk if they aren't used safely and correctly. Always carefully assess the risks and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
