Big news today – We are extending our machinery line-up with the addition of the Curtain Call traveler winch. It’s a 1hp machine designed to mount directly to the batten or truss that holds your traveler track, and of course it’s powered by a Stagehand AC for plug-and-play compatibility with Spikemark.

Creative Conners Introduces New Curtain Call Traveler Winch
Creative Conners, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of its new Curtain Call machine, designed specifically for traveler tracks. Compact and tough, this latest addition to the Creative Conners stable of electric winches provides live performances with an affordable and elegant option for automating traveler curtains.
Curtain Call will join the Pushstick winch and Revolver turntable friction drive in the company’s line of machines, offering a comprehensive solution to theatres, schools and scene shops looking to automate all aspects of their scenery.
“Our customers have had a lot of success using our Pushstick winch to rig their travelers, but it was a little bit overkill. Curtain Call will do the same job, but it will be cheaper and smaller. Since it mounts to the batten, it won’t be on the floor freeing up valuable wing space,” says Gareth Conner, Founder and President of Creative Conners.
Curtain Call employs a 1-HP SEW Eurodrive gearmotor within a steel frame and uses a v-pulley loop to move the track haul line. The frame includes 1.5″ pipe for easy mounting with cheeseboroughs to either pipe battens or box truss. By mounting to the batten or truss, there won’t be any ropes or machines on the deck, and the traveler can be flown out.
Curtain Call comes ready to plug into a Stagehand motor controller allowing for seamless integration with Spikemark scenic-automation software from Creative Conners.
Creative Conners, Inc. is located in Warren, RI and makes scenic automation equipment for live performances. For more information, please visit www.creativeconners.com or contact us at (401) 289-2942 or by email: sales@creativeconners.
