For many production designers, stage drapes in shades of red are the perfect choice to evoke a classic, timeless feel to the set. Consider how often you have walked into to a venue, whether it be a small school auditorium or a large performing arts center, and discovered that the venue’s beautiful grand drapes are – you guessed it – a shade of red. From bright tomato to deep burgundy, and various shades in between, red never goes out of style for stage drapery.

Because red is popular with stage, touring production, and event designers, Rent What? created the “Rockin’ Red” Drapery Collection of rental stage drapes. All in rich shades of red and burgundy, the majority of drapery in this collection is sized for use in small theatres (23’h x 40’w) and large theatres and arenas (30’h x 60’w).

The Rockin’ Red Collection includes:

  • Crimson Cabaret Grand Bi-Parting Drapery: Encore Velour, highlighted by gold digitally printed elements along with gold trim and bullion fringe.
  • Venetian Contour Curtains: Super-Vel and Encore Velour
  • Austrian Curtain: Satin
  • Swags: Super-Vel and Illusion
  • Pleated Borders: Super-Vel
  • Pleated Legs: SuperVel, Encore Velour, and Illusion

Here are just a few examples of the gorgeous rental stage curtains in this collection:
