SECOND BOLT is a bold + savvy consulting, production and management company providing multifaceted services across all aspects of the entertainment industry.

We have worked with Second Bolt on four events and all four have been very successful for our organization. The team at Second Bolt are experts at pacing event prep, they think about everything, and they are a pleasure to work with. Second Bolt offers the right balance of professionalism and personal warmth, which has been a great combination for our non-profit.

Allison Prouty is a force of nature. She is the woman you want on your side, your team. She will take you there.

Attention all immovable objects: meet the irresistible force. Allison and company at Second Bolt worked tirelessly to deliver tangible results in an often intangible business. My amazement at how greatly my expectations were exceeded is only surpassed by my gratitude.

Allison Prouty and her team at Second Bolt completely own the sponsorship process from acquisition to activation to load-out. They excel at making sure that both sides of the relationship see value and we've seen that in the amount of returning partners to our event. They are a pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to any event producer that is looking to take their sponsorship program to the next level!

Working with Second Bolt has been among the most satisfying experiences of my career. No one is as dedicated to my business as I am, but Allison and her team come very close; from day one, they showed a rare amount of passion and hard work, enabling me to go further and faster than I thought possible. I simply can't imagine doing what I do without them.

When Second Bolt produced Pilobolus Dance Theatre's 40th Anniversary gala—a high-exposure opportunity to gather critical support—and we couldn't have placed ourselves in better hands. The gala was the company's most successful yet. Guests are still raving about it. Second Bolt was excellent in every way—creative, persuasive, reliable, energetic, and good humored—an absolute pleasure to work with.

Allison Prouty and her team at Second Bolt were a tremendous asset to my non-profit organization’s recent production at NYC’s Town Hall. Allison is extremely organized, has laser-sharp attention to detail, indefatigable energy, terrific contacts with both vendors and technical personnel, and the ability to marshal and lead a far-flung team of production staff (with all their varying priorities and personalities), while maintaining focus, positive energy, and professionalism at all times. Hiring Second Bolt, with Allison as our event’s production manager, kept our costs under control, our stress level remarkably low, and our enthusiasm high, despite a grueling pre-production and event-day schedule with so many moving parts. This team played an integral role in the smashing success of our event - we couldn’t have asked for better!

Amber Black, Rosenberg Fund for Children

The leadership, poise, professionalism, promptness, of Allison Prouty and the Second Bolt team is unmatched. Solving problems before they came one; Stepping in when no one stepped up; a team you can count on. Simply put: this event for The Classical Theatre of Harlem was successful because of Allison and her crew. Period.

Ty Jones, The Classical Theatre of Harlem

Second Bolt is the hottest live event production team in the market right now. With their assistance, our audience numbers jumped, our box office numbers grew exponentially – I can’t say enough about this team, led by Allison Prouty. They will take your event to a higher level and will do it all with professionalism, dedication and respect.
