Adding some sparkle and drama to your special event or production has never been easier! Using some fabulous rental Mylar Rain Curtains from our Oh So Swanky! drapery collection is a surefire way to wow your crowd, and also give your background some movement, light, and texture without overpowering the performers in front of them. Recently we were extremely proud to be a part of the stage design for California State University Long Beach’s Fall 2014 Homecoming MFA/Alumni concert, called “Romp Show.” Directed and choreographed remarkably by MFA student Kathleen Helm, these “energetic and spunky” dancers were able to do incredible feats of modern dance on a stage lit enchantingly by Elisha L. Griego, wearing costumes creatively designed by Liz Carpenter, and all in front of some dazzling 23’h Mylar Rain Curtain theatrical stage drapes.
Mylar Rain Curtains are extremely lightweight and durable making them a breeze to hang, but even more impressive is that they be lit up in a multitude of ways in order to help create the exact mood and motif you are going for with each scene, making these a lighting designer’s dream come true. You can see from these photos expertly taken by Gregory R. R. Crosby that not only did the drapes add a little glitz and glamour to the overall stage design, but that they also helped set the whimsical, bubbly mood that Helm was very successful in creating with her amazing choreography and spirited dancers.
We love it when our clients are able to use our rental drapes to help make their event extra special, and this performance is a perfect example of how using the right drapes to help create the right look for your stage design is especially rewarding.
