Our Story

Rhino Staging was founded in Arizona in 1991. At that time, the working conditions for stagehands there were poor. Rhino was founded with the simple philosophy of doing things right and treating people well. This was a recipe for success and Rhino’s reputation for professional service and excellent working conditions grew. This has allowed us to become the leading provider of event labor staffing nationwide. We have pioneered many positive changes in the entertainment industry and will continue to lead in safety, training, and professional service.
