Desired Effect


East Bay


It all started with a glass gobo...

...followed by the desire for good quality equipment. Add a black wardrobe and copious amounts of coffee and a company is born.

Having helped clients find the desired effect for hundreds of different shows and events, Desired Effect is now a full service theatrical production company in the San Francisco Bay Area. We offer equipment rental in Lighting, Sound, Costumes, Props, Special Effects, and even some Sets as well as full service design and custom special effects. Together with our clients, we’ve created undersea worlds full of bubbles and smoke, light up wireless pinball machines, pirate ships made of stars, light up dancing pianos and more! We have everything needed to turn an empty room into a full theatrical space, or just what you need to add one special effect to a show you have already planned. If you’re in the process of planning a show, contact us.

Environmentally Friendly

Desired Effect is making theatre and events more environmentally friendly while continuing to be rock solid reliable.  All rental packages now include rechargeable batteries for no additional charge. Our re-chargable systems are also available to rent for your systems for less than the cost of consumable Alkaline batteries.
