About Two Sharp Stix

Bending the Laws of Physics for Audiences Everywhere

Laws are made to be broken, right?  

Truth is, we don't really break those laws - but we sure like to bend them!  The result?

  An audience full of swinging jaws and big, healthy grins. 

That's exactly what we love to do.

We've been designing unique and mind-blowing special effects and custom elements for live audiences for over 30 years. 

We don't rinse and repeat - ever.  Our customers keep coming back and we keep inventing.  It's our passion!

Lasers, Cryo, Pyro, Flames, Fog and Mechanicals...

These are the building blocks of fun.   Something special awaits...
